As a single mother of two, Santos needed a way to provide for her family. She joined a Friendship Bridge Trust Bank and received loan capital to start a small weaving business. Santos weaves on a backstrap loom and creates products including table runners, huipiles, belts, scarves, and shawls. She also makes jewelry, bookmarks, coasters, and does some embroidery. Recently, Santos learned to dye threads in the jaspe tradition and is using jaspe and natural dyes to create beautiful scarves. Always enthusiastic about learning new techniques, Santos is optimistic and the future of her business and her family.
