Textile production has an important tradition in Quiroga, especially in the parishes of  mountain areas, long time ago reached their moment of fame Vieiros artisans in the parish of A Seara. The processing of wool and flax into thread, and then in pieces of clothing or bedding, are a complex and ingenious process that currently is completely lost. The magic of the weavers has been disappearing with the transformation of life, and their ability is being reduced to small spaces in museums.
