"This now a great addition to our life style."

I can not begin to tell you how pleased we are with our purchase of the foot stool . My complements to the Rios Family for such fine work. We love it so much we are ordering one more. We would be very interested in other items that the Rios Family makes. So if you would please pass this on to the Rios Family.

"Unsurpassed Craftsmanship"

Beautifully finished and detailed small wood and leather chest, most apt for use as a jewelry box. The leather is finely embossed with Inca symbols. I was also surprised that it was larger than it appeared in the picture. This is true craftsmanship and quality. Recommend this artisan and his products highly!

"I LOVE this chest, but..."

The hinge is not working properly -- my husband will try to repair the cracked wood as the chest is absolutely gorgeous!

"This stool is perfection"

It exceeds our expectations in beauty, functionality, quality and uniqueness. And to know it was lovingly crafted by hand in Peru is perhaps the best feature of all. Many thanks!
