Browse by tag
The Chinchero Collection is a unique line of textile products ethically sourced from the Centro de Textilos Traditionales de Cusco, based in the small indigenous village of Chinchero, one hour from Cusco. The Centre works in nine different communities and provides sustainable incomes for approximately 350 adult artisans.
The Centro de Textilos is a not-for-profit organisation founded in1966 with the aim of helping local communities, cultural exchange and educating all generations on the ancient art of traditional weaving.
The artisans are paid fair wages for their products. All product prices are determined and set by the relevant communities, not by the centre. National taxes and administrative fees are then added onto the wholesale price.
