Like other shops in town, this store onlysells authenticated crafts and textiles from the area. Beautiful sculptures, but mainly textiles.

There are several nice examples of artesanal work here, including textiles, wood carving, and pottery, but it isn't a place to do real shopping, unless you don't have time to wander through the wide range of markets that Oaxaca is known for.

Practically every kind of artisan wares under one roof. All of high quality, and prices hardly higher and in some cases cheaper than the markets and street vendors. Look at your leisure with no pressure to buy. They accept major credit cards too.

A great place to see work of different artisans of Oaxaca. Casa de las artisans is place to learn and watch great masterpieces made by traditional Oaxaca artist.
