How we make them
I never say "I can't."
My name is Maribel Granados, mother of three children. I am from San Pedro Sacatepéquez, Guatemala, a land of artisan tradition. I learned to embroider and weave from my grandmother and mother from the age of 7, both on a waist loom and a foot loom. Everything I am as an artisan I owe to them because they taught me to survive alone. One day my mother said "daughter, now it's your turn to stay in charge of the business." I learned to never say I can't, because there are always people, primarily my mother, who can help me with the challenges that come with the production of new products. This experience taught me so much and I never would have been able to have that if it wasn't for the example and opportunity that my mother set for me. What she gave me was priceless and I want to pass that same lesson onto my children. In appreciation for her help, I like to share my knowledge and train other artisans when they need support.
