CHINCHERO | Centro Textil URPI is one of the many places to find textiles in the Sacred Valley town of Chinchero. Chinchero is famous for its handicrafts and textiles, and there are artisans in this town who make things the way they’ve been made for centuries.

At Centro Textil URPI you can see women dressed in traditional costumes perform the process of spinning and dyeing alpaca wool with natural dyes, before hand weaving beautiful fabrics and things like towels, table runners, and rugs.

There are short tours given in English, and at the end there is, of course, the opportunity to purchase items. Things are a bit pricier than the machine made items, but the quality of the handiwork is worth the extra price. Do be sure to barter down to a fair price that suits both you and the seller.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences.Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
