Story Behind the Art: Fernando Cano was introduced to textiles by his uncles. He says, 'My artistic origins come from my family, my uncles worked in textiles and little by little they introduced me to this world. I love being part of this world, where I can translate materials into beautiful products. My work means everything to me: it's what I love and cherish, and I love the fact that I can provide for my family thanks to it.'
