"Since we were little girls, since our parents taught ushow to weave when we were six years old, we have continued to maintain our customs: straw hats are our sustenance. We are proud to be women and of what we do, because by doing this we are able to sustain our families. We handle ourselves autonomously; things have changed dramatically"
