Traditional clothing in the peruvian andes

TEXTILES
Walking around the artisanal markets in town you’ll see colors galore and a wide variety of garments. From handwoven items to a cheaper batch made things, they all look amazing. And all have that ‘Cusco feel’ about them.
 
Around the city, there are some artisan centers where you can find some great items. On Avenida el Sol you’ll find the biggest market where you can find just about anything you’re looking for from pillowcases to table mats.
 
If you have more time it’s an excellent idea to head out of town. Pisac market offers a huge range of bits that you can spend hours looking around. Or, as part of a tour, you could visit Chinchero where you’ll get to see the weaving in action and learn about how they dye the fabrics with local ingredients.
 
Textiles are a huge part of Peruvian culture and you’ll see many around the city wearing traditional dress. So, this is a great way to take a piece of it home with you to remember the colorful vibe of the place.
