Story Behind the Art:
'Life has taught me that new opportunities always arise no matter how dire things get: paths are opened and there are new doors to knock on,' believes Laura Morales. 'My grandmother was a seamstress and she used to sell her creations in the local market. She taught my mother and together they began designing and sewing fine clothes for children. Now I've specialized in products for home that are woven on a back strap or foot looms. Working with textiles is a passion that runs through our veins.'
