"The pictures dont do it justice.."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The Lucky Tumi was delivered yesterday, and I was anxious to see if was as advertised. It was more than I expected! It looks fantastic on the wall, and is a great conversation piece. The workmanship is outstanding, and its obvious that that Angel respects the history of Peru and represents its traditions with talent and dedication.

I never wanted a crucifixion cross until I saw this one. Its simplicity allows me to reflect on what it actually represents.

So much fun to hang a little sun that features such great design (love the squareness) and intricacy! Absolutely beautiful and looks great on our putty colored wall on top of a framed painting. Thank you!

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

"Metal work has been part of Peruvian culture since before the Incas. It is an inheritance that my father taught me and I have taught my children. In our workshop, we make many replicas of Inca and traditional Peruvian art. We use brass, copper and silver like our ancestors did. This keeps our culture alive."

Angel still supports most of his family. He provides for his own wife and the wife of his eldest son. He pays for the education of his children. His Novica sales enable him to do so, providing a steady source of income for the family.

Angel Franco has received 5 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $600 and the most recent for $2000. Proceeds were used to invest in a bulk purchase of bronze and copper for his metalwork.

Angel has four children. His eldest son is unable to pay for the education of his two daughters. Angel provides for his granddaughters' education.
