Meaning & Purpose
How we handle hardships is a true testament to our resiliency. This weaver's story shows heartache, but most importantly her triumph over her hardship is inspiring to her craft and family. “At eighteen, I married a man who did not treat me well. The marriage and mistreatment destroyed me emotionally, and I carry the pain with me to this day...I love weaving because it keeps women from begging and allows a single mom like me to provide my children with everything they need. Not only has it lifted me and so many other women out of extreme conditions of poverty, but it provides us with a safe place.”"
