Her mother and grandmother dedicated their lives to weaving in order to sustain the family. For this reason, her mother taught Trinidad and her three sisters the art of loom from a very young age. When she was 10 years old, Trinidad wove ayates (a cloth used to make a cloak-like garment made from the fiber of the maguey plant, similar to henequen or sisal), rebozos and huipiles.
For some years, she dedicated herself to her profession, but never left the threads and the loom — sometimes to have an extra income and sometimes only for the pleasure of creating. Sitting down to weave always made her feel more complete, more creative and more connected to the community.
Little by little, she began to notice that the loom made her feel more alive. She left her career and returned to weaving full-time.
In 2013, with the support of her family, they opened their first store Artesanías Domitzu, a family business dedicated to the elaboration of crafts on the back-strap loom. With a reputation for quality, the business grew and eventually they added another store. Now, not purely a family business, they are a social enterprise in which the community participates.
In the team of "Artesanías Domitzu" they currently have 10 women: 7 artisans, 2 seamstresses and 1 designer — some weaving full-time, others give free classes to members of the community. They are one of the few families that preserve the back-strap technique of "tres alzaderas" or "doble vista", techniques that due to their complexity are in danger of extinction.
Revitalizing the use of the back-strap loom has allowed them to understand their identity as part of the Hñahñu people, which at the same time, has led them to acquire the commitment to preserve the craft.
The group has won many awards such as:
- Third Place at the Gran Premio Nacional de Arte Popular in 2015 in Mexico City,
- First Place in Concurso de Fibras Vegetales in 2015 in Campeche, Campeche,
- Third place at the Gran Premio Nacional del Arte Popular in 2018, México City.
