I was so impressed by the Collective and the women weavers. They were very open and friendly. They showed us how to spin the darn, dye it and then weave with it. The pieces the weavers had fr sell were beautiful.

Amazing tour, very informative and genuine. Yes, it costs a bit more than most tours you will find on the Gringo Trail but these guys are changing the games in ethical tourism in Peru.
