'I began to work at a relatively young age to help with the family's finances, for dad had died and mom did all that she could to bring us up,' confides Laura Leticia Burrion. 'I worked at a big handicrafts company, where I became impassioned about Guatemala's traditional arts, especially textiles, and I began to churn the idea of a project involving hand-woven fabrics and the women from my community. We are now a large group of enthusiastic women who work hard and have big dreams of success.'What is Worldstock?The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design.
