  • I chanced upon this co-op by taking a chance on a sign directing me down a little path between the houses. I was greeted by lovely women, a great shop full of fabulous textiles and a small museum with some gorgeous vintage pieces. You can also learn about the natural dying process. I took a private 2 day (8 hour) backstrap loom class with Cecilia who patiently showed me how to weave and guided me through to the completion of my first piece - all in the cooperatives peaceful garden at the front of the shop. If you really want to appreciate the work that goes into this art form I truly recommend taking a class here!
  • Purchased some absolutely beautiful pieces from this cooperative. The women who work in the shop are lovely and proud of their craft. Don't be put off by the winding streets providing access, it is well worth a stop if you are in San Juan.
