The Center for Traditional Textiles of Cusco (CTTC) is a nonprofit organization founded in 1996, when the textile traditions in the Cusco region of the Andes were in danger of disappearing. Currently working with over 450 weavers in ten communities, we manage traveling exhibits, a museum, retail stores, teaching and training centers, and provide ongoing support to our community members. Our objectives are to revive and continue the cultural heritage of textile creation, educate people to its tradition, and stimulate the production of traditional- based textiles. Tours are o ered through Andean Textile Arts (andeantextilearts.org). Our products are available in the United States through www.clothroads.com.
