“I made my own shoes (2nd picture). Old people teach the young generation how to make their traditional clothes. Mothers teach her kids. Or mothers-in-law teaches their daughters-in-law if she doesn’t know how to make it.”

“My mother and grandmother taught me how to work, that kids should go to school, and that we should be hard working. I have passed these lessons down to my kids. I taught them to be a good person, I also taught them how to work, how to raise their kids, make clothes and cook food. I taught them embroidery techniques, sewing and taking care of their family.”
