El Gran Condor

Arts & Crafts in Peguche

On the central plaza of Peguche, El Gran Condor is the place for textile fanatics who didn’t find what they wanted in Otavalo. The shop sells high-quality textiles made locally, including sweaters, scarves and wall hangings. Call ahead to arrange for demonstrations of dyeing and weaving techniques.

Jose and Luzmilla will greet you with a smile, as they've done for 35 years with generations of gringo shoppers. Look for the large peach house opposite the church with – naturally – the massive condor statues flanking the entranceway.
