It's worth seeking out this small fair trade shop in Cusco. I bought a gorgeous textile purse for 90 soles ($32.01 USD), knowing that 80% goes to the weaver from the Bombon community. The dyes are from natural plants, the fabric is 100% alpaca, and even has dried beans functioning as buttons to fasten the top. These weavers are in isolated communities that don't even have the option of 'cheating' with artificial dyes or machines.
There are so many artisan markets vying for your attention- probably mostly manufactured in factories in Lima. A few have artisan goods- that hardly support the artisans themselves. Considering you are buying direct from the organization that is in contact with the weavers, the prices are fairly comparable to non-fair trade goods.
