About Isa Catepillán
I wove on and off since I was a little kid, but I stopped doing it for long time. I reconnected with it 3 years ago and I re-fell in love straight away - not just with the value of making one of a kind beautiful things by hand, but also for many other reasons like the simplicity of the tools, the fact of keeping tradition and all the health benefits (just to mention a few).I design and make Crochet Wedding Dresses by hand, full time. After I started my business, I discovered that on the island my ancestors come from, every single woman knits, weaves or crochets, and they have been doing it for many generations. I felt deeply touched by the understanding of why I do what I do. Since then, every time I crochet I feel connected with my lineage and with my own truth and this is the main reason why I committed to do it always with love and for love, and to share this knowledge every time I can.
