K’antu - Shopping Puno - Peru

K’antu brings together local producers under one roof, allowing you to buy directly from them without middlemen. Working with artisan associations in Ilave, Chinchera, Pisacoma, Acora, Juli and Puno, this fair-trade shop has several show rooms that display handmade, 100 percent alpaca sweaters, shawls, gloves and other apparel, as well as embroidered belts, jewelry, ceramics (from Puno, Ayacucho and Chulucanas) and other creations. Most are of modern designs. K’antu is a member of Central Integral de Artesanos del Perú (CIAP), a nation-wide artisan collective, and the World Fair Trade Organization.
