Details

The dreams of these three sleeping kitties are probably as simple as enjoying a saucer of milk, but Daniel Vargas, the Peruvian artisan who makes them by hand, has bigger dreams, such as growing his business and giving his family a better life. "I find I am excited to know that people around the world will not only see my products, but also learn about me, my story and my family," says the craftsman. Daniel designs and carves this set of three feline ornaments from dried mate, a type of gourd, using the traditional engraving and pyrography techniques of his Andean hometown, Cochas Chico.
