In Attire
Relationship: Im/migrant

The ruana is a traditional coat in my country, they use it to work in cold areas, since it is made of wool or in certain places it is a common garment, this object belonged to my great-grandfather, he gave it to my father to live with the Ruana all the experiences that she lived working for her 8 children and grandchildren so they do not lack anything. He always worked and fought for them. My father gave it to me because I am the only daughter to always feel protected by my father and my great-grandfather since my great-grandfather was very important for my father's life, this reminds me of my family and the traditions of my country, since they use it to work and for me it means progressing and working hard for what we want.
