Textile Trainee Testimonies


The first graduates from “Textile Trainee” –El Espartano’s new annual internship program– share their experiences with us

Launched at the beginning of the year, the Textile Trainee program offers three-month internships to students of all courses of studies for them to apply their knowledge and develop new abilities in an independent manner, while accompanied by an in-house mentor.

This type of initiative represents for us an invaluable step towards the training of true textile professionals while allowing young people to develop and obtain a real worldly experience and helping as well to the growth of this industry.

In this article, the first four graduates from this program share their experience at El Espartano with us. Thank you a lot to all of them!

Helga Mariel Soto was an intern within the Design Area in the Samples Workshop department. Her tutor was Verónica Mercado.

“My experience at El Espartano was short but very satisfactory. From the moment I was interviewed I felt totally at ease with the company’s environment and I learnt more and more about yarns, rugs, textures and colors each day. Verónica, as well as the rest of the team were great work mates and made me feel very welcome. I leave the company after gaining great experience and invaluable knowledge and with the desire of having stayed a bit longer”.
