Discovering Centro Textil Acllas, Sacred Valley

This was the first stop from our daily excursion of the sacred valley.  We were fortunate enough to discover this place because of our taxi driver, and new friend Alex.  He suggested visiting this place and told us the prices were far better than any market around.  Let’s just say the quality can differ from one location to another!  If visiting Chinchero, make sure to add some time to visit Centro Textil Acllas !

We were welcomed with a big smile and a cup of tea ! We were still adjusting to the altitude and they took great care of us.  Great reception!

The place is simple but really well organized to receive small groups. The staff explained the textile process, demonstrated the techniques to prepare the colours and how they put together each amazing piece.  All the work we never see when buying pieces in stores.  It really gives perspective and the time and effort it takes.  It sure gave us a greater appreciation !

It was really fun and interesting. There is a store onsite with many product varieties.  Oh, and there is a WC in case you need it.
