The sound of her Arab loom fills the air of the workshop of Isabel Soler, one of the few weavers left in Níjar, a town in the province of Almería. She comes from a family of weavers and assures that the sounds of looms captivated her. She weaves blankets and carpets which have reached to homes in the United States or Germany. She takes care of dying the wool she uses with the plants she harvests.
