One of the customs of women in Sozoranga is sewing and manual embroidery, which has been lost due to easy access to industrially made clothes. With the appearance of covid-19, many families have restricted their access to nearby populated centers and their income to buy clothes has also decreased. Faced with this situation, women and adolescents were encouraged to participate in sewing and manual embroidery workshops to make basic clothing items, serving both as occupational therapy, to vary their daily activities and also to socialize and interact among the participants.
