Discover the living history of the Peruvian Andes with a textile tour

Peru is an amazing country with a wealth of great archaeological sites, cultural activities and restaurants. If you are like us, you're itching to get your hands dirty as you experience the 5000-year old textile tradition first-hand through weaving and natural dye workshops. We offer a number of exciting, specially-designed textile-focused Peruvian tours in partnership with Apus Peru Adventure Travel Specialists - from a 1-day glimpse into the Andean lifestyle, to a 14-day full-on immersion!

A portion of proceeds from these tours is donated to Threads of Peru for community projects. All of our tours support sustainable tourism in Peru and in rural villages.

A Unique Intro to the Textiles of Peru - May 16 to 27 - 2020.

We're excited to offer an exclusive 12-day textile tour in partnership with Traditions Mexico. Join us as we visit nearly every weaving association that Threads of Peru works with, learning about the Andean weaving tradition as we go. We'll see landscapes and cultural dress change as we travel to little-visited corners of the Andes, learn about all aspects of the weaving process, and even do some hands-on activities.
