The women worry about the future of their weaving heritage, but it is the sales of the weavings that motivate them and the chicas to find time to weave. To purchase a weaving please send your inquiry to Dorinda at dkdutcher@hotmail.com. Sales today will affect PAZA’s ability to place future orders. Thank you.
