Carpets at Alfombras de Puyuhuapi are handwoven by three generations of women from Chiloé who use only natural wool thread and cotton fibers. The rustic vertical looms, designed and built specifically for this shop, allow the weavers to make carpets with a density of 20,000 knots per square meter. Trained by his father and grandfather, who opened the shop here in 1945, proprietor Helmut E. Hopperdietzel proudly displays the extensive stock of finished carpets of various
sizes and designs. Carpets can be shipped. The shop is closed in June.
