Gabriela had a busy family and started learning to weave from her mother Emilia when she was just 6 years old. Not only does she know how to weave the uppers, but she is familiar with the whole process as her family used to run a small business out of their house.
Gabriela beams when she talks about her two boys. Her eldest just received a scholarship to study a masters in economy. This is not easy to do in Mexico and she couldn’t be more proud.
She loves her mom’s cooking and fresh veggies which her mom takes credit for, saying that she always made her eat her vegetables.
