Details

A striking chest presented by the Rios Family of Peru, its colonial design complemented by ancient Inca motifs. The textured surfaces pulsate with the energy of the tumi, a ceremonial knife considered sacred among the ancient civilizations of the Andes. To create the imagery, the artisans meticulously emboss leather by hand, enhancing the natural vision with a delicate application of walnut finish. The chest's frame is crafted from fine tornillo wood, its solid essence offering a worthy backing to the leather composition. This work features interior compartments lined in burgundy velour and a sturdy bronze clasp and hinges.

"A Beautiful Keepsake"

This beautiful box arrived wrapped like a birthday gift. When I unwrapped the box, words could not describe the awe I felt. The workmanship was beyond what I expected. The Tomi Ceremony box actually looks better than shown online. I couldnt be happier with my purchase. Bev Hawaii

"An Heirloom!"

The workmanship with the leather tooling and upholstery is outstanding. I have worked with both and can appreciate the precision displayed in my piece. I could not be more pleased. The assembly was not difficult. Each leg was numbered with its matching hole. That was very helpful because of the number of pegs involved that also needed to be aligned and because each handmade stool will have slight differences. Many thanks to the Rios family for their outstanding work.
