Francisco Castro


I am a 43 year old artisan. My specialty is weaving in a traditional lever loom and to prepare the fabric to be woven in the looms.
I feel truly happy to be a part of this project, because I can provide my family with an education and a life with a better future. My father and also my brother Ciro have taught me a big part of what I know about the traditional techniques that we use to create Lula's designs. I am grateful to them for being patient with me and helping me become a true artisan.
Working with Lula has opened our minds to new designs and has enabled us to create products we had never imagined. I think we collectively feel a great sense of accomplishment and satisfaction, every time we finish creating a design.
