Choy Spolavil is a cooperative that joined NGOimpacto eight years ago. Inspired by older women, the younger generations were interested in reviving traditional weaving practices. A group that is constantly innovating and optimising the sale of their products. They have also exchanged experiences of technical processes with colleagues from other communities, which further enriched their work.
