Maria Augusta, 73 years old, learned how to weave with linen from Mrs. Maria Joaquina, 92 years old, who nursed her when her mother died.
The weaving loom always guided her life and her decisions. She sows flax, performs the whole linen cycle and she keeps 2 weaving looms in her workplace. A small one and a larger one. It’s a place where we can feel love, care and tenderness all around.
She’s a Cooperativa Grupo de Tecelagem de Limões’ member since its creation, never left and belongs to the current board.
Looking at the future, she states, with true enthusiasm, that “this will go on! My three daughters know how to weave with linen. And I’m already teaching my granddaughter”.
