 Post production tasks: textiles (Spain)

Val de San Lorenzo has a long textile tradition making woollen blankets, which in this case, were made by mother and daughter with a manual loom. The artisans who keep up this activity (with manual or mechanical looms) are ageing and there are no young people to replace them, which bodes ill for the future of the sector, relegated to the textile museum.
