"I want to preserve our history and our culture so that it will survive the passing of time while transmitting the essence of Peru.”
Moises Alvarez Santti was born in the region of Ayacucho, Peru, on July 18, 1958. When he turned 15 years old, he moved to Lima to study leather and woodcrafts under the guidance of his uncle.
"After six years' apprenticeship, I felt ready to start a workshop with my brother," Moises explains. "Sadly, my brother passed away in 1980. Meanwhile, I was left with the huge responsibility of carrying on with the day-to-day activities of running the workshop. I've managed to maintain our business through a lot of hard work. And in doing so, I proudly honor his memory.
"Now its my turn to train others in the family, mainly my nephews and other relatives. Some of my sisters work with me as well.
"One of my most important commissions was to craft the image of a leather animal for Peruvian television. That was in 1980. Once in a while, it still comes appears on the air today!
"To me, my art is the way through which I can express my country's culture, just like my ancestors did. I don't want to fail our predecessors. I want to preserve our history and our culture so that it will survive the passing of time while transmitting the essence of Peru.
"What also motivates me is the love I have for my wife, who encourages me everyday, along with my desire to ensure a good future for my three daughters - who are my joy and strength.
"I would like to assure Novica clients that my products are a labor of love - intended for you as individuals. Each of my creations represents the combined efforts of our workshop, and our devoted team members who, in one way or another, each had something to do with it."
Beautifully crafted leather wastebasket. It didn't feel right putting such a work of art on the floor. It makes a beautiful addition to the room.
I just received the beautiful chair you made - it looks every bit as beautiful as the website picture and then some. It is very comfortable, too. Thank you for the quality and beauty in the detail.
I just received the wood and leather armchair ""Nobility "". Let me just say that this chair is a work of art . I plan to purchase more of these pieces as they become available. Thank you Novica ! And, thank you Moises Alvarez !!!!
This is a 5+ star item all the way. Highly recommended in >all< categories... Mr.Alvarez makes the leather work look like carved wood; it appears like a deep mahogany set. Just wonderful! It's a do-it- yourself assembly project as one might expect for the sake of shipping. Speaking of which, the shipping fee is a give away - this set is heavy! The overall price is a complete bonus given the quality and amount of work involved. The little stools do fit under the table and, even with my non-petite derriere, are quite comfortable! Or you have four apéritif &/or hors d'oeuvre tables! You will be totally pleased.
