Where in the World is Awamaki?

Don’t Panic!

It’s true, Awamaki’s doors that have been open almost every day to welcome patrons passing on Calle Principal are now closed. But it’s ok, keep calm and move on. We have, down to Plaza Araccama.

Earlier this month, our staff signed a new lease with the Iglesia de Santiago Apostol for the new real estate. We’ll admit, the space needed some T.L.C. After a week of cleaning and dressing the store with a fresh coat of paint (or two), we moved our inventory and opened our new doors on Saturday, March 21.

Right now it’s a little hard to find, tucked into the back corner behind the market stalls, but we’re brainstorming real hard to come up with ways to catch your eye.

We are excited to have so much space and can’t wait to fill it with the wonderful new textiles our cooperatives are creating.

If you’re in the neighborhood, stop by and say hi!
