Embroidery is a clear example of the culture blend we see today in Cusco. This technique was brought by spaniards, but little by little has been developed using andean colors and designs, incorporating it into popular folklore. Today, there is a characteristic embroidery pattern for each one of the 13 districts in Cusco. In this experience, we'll be able to see artisans working on this elaborate craft, as well as the typical Cusco weaving techniques. Travelers who want to take a souvenir home will find clothing already made, but we will
also give them the option of leaving a garment of their own so it can be embroidered with a little piece of Cusco before they return home.
