Visit with Chinchero Weavers

Art, home décor and fashion devotees should head to a local weaving community in the Sacred Valley, known as the breadbasket of Peru, to pay homage to an incredibly impressive and time-consuming Quechuan art form. Upon arrival, enter a small courtyard where women of all ages, some as young as seven, weave intricate designs for table runners, blankets and clothing. With your expert guide, walk through each step of the process, from dyeing the wool to throwing the yarn. It’s a fairly sedentary activity, so we recommend factoring in a bit of time to visit the fascinating local ruins and craft market before returning to your hotel.
