Hi! My name is Yelitza Barrios, but you can call me Yeli.
First and foremost, thank you for being here! Filamentos is the result of a lot of hard work but mostly, genuine love and incredible passion.
When I was young, my mom taught me how to weave. I always saw it as a hobby, something to do when I had some free time. It wasn’t until a few years ago when I faced some really hard moments in my personal life. I unconsciously turned to weaving as a refuge. It helped me think and organize my ideas; it was only me, the silence and the movement of knitting. I found peace in the process. I could spend hours at a time weaving, and in that moment, I felt I could truly connect to my deepest self. I found light in the knots and myself in every weave. I quickly realized how passionate I felt about it and eventually decided to share that feeling with the world. That’s when Filamentos was born.
