Eduardo is in his 80s, and has been a tailor since he was very young. His dream was to become a sailor, but his parents wouldn’t let him. Back when he started, he spent 3 years working as an apprentice, not making a cent until he had learned “enough” about tailoring. He later went on to establish his own shop, which in its heyday had 12 seamstresses. Now, after decades in the same locale, he works alone, and no one seems to want to follow in his footsteps. His shop already showed clear signs of decay, and needed to be dignified to honor his long and accomplished career.
