Thread by thread, stories that have been transmitted from generation to generation are woven in this community, to create textiles that carry in their design its cultural identity.
Located in a place where 40 years ago there were more than 50 artisans and 200 looms engaged in weaving in lever looms, our community Hand-woven Stories is the only one that survives, led by artisanal master Mr. Don Ciro Castro.
Don Ciro learned the technique of weaving in a lever loom from his father and has passed it on to new generations, who at present are the ones that produce the lines of textile accessories that Lula designs for the home.
Lula designs lines of products using artisanal techniques that are disappearing in El Salvador, such as weaving in lever and double frame looms, and markets them throughout the world. This enables communities of artisans to access fair and sustainable work opportunities by producing Lula’s designs.
