Mirian embodies our Women’s Empowerment badge for the strength she has shown in the face of atrocity. "I suffered a terrible incident of sexual abuse, but I survived and have moved past it," she confides. Mirian continues to inspire us with her resilience. "When I was still a young girl, I learned the art of hand-weaving from my mother. I'm proud of preserving this ancient tradition and I'm passing it on to my children."

"I love this art because it represents my past and my present. Through our weavings, we communicate our cultural values. Preserving this beautiful artistic tradition has become a challenge since young women don't seem to be interested in weaving, so we need to promote it or else it will die out." Mirian first learned how to weave from her mother, and wishes to inspire others and pass this tradition down to new generations."

Mirian is a strong and amazing women who has managed to overcome a horrible incident of sexual abuse. Her hard work and determination have made her the inspirational woman she is today.

Mirian has worked hard to create new designs which has led to the increase in her sales. Her perseverance and passion have helped her continuously expand and grow her weaving workshop.

"I Couldn't Be Happier!"

This weaving is very jewel-like, so lovely. And it's meticulously woven. I live in New Mexico and my particular region is known for its weaving tradition. This piece holds up to these centuries-old weaving houses. It's going to be perfect in my home.
