Kantu Weaving Center
CHINCHERO – Cusco
KANTU WEAVING CENTER is a family initiative that was born in early 2014 through the creation of a textile center in the district of Chinchero in Cusco, Peru. Our first objective was to have a space for the families in our community to exhibit the fine artistic beauty of Andean weavings, in this case the best of Chinchero, already known throughout Cusco and world-wide for their magnificent quality, as well as the opportunity to sell their goods on the market and generate some income for the people of these rural areas. A center where anyone can come to learn about the techniques, processes, materials, elaboration, the coloring and dyes, and final steps of this handmade art from the master weavers themselves. In addition, a cultural space that supports the recovery and preservation of ancestral traditions of Andean communities to be shared with the world. With the purpose of helping the economy of these families, under principles of protection, revaluation and preservation of our Andean customs, KANTU WEAVING CENTER, has been working until these days independently, receiving tourists from other travel agencies and free tourists, But always with the support and supervision of KANTU PERU TOURS.
