"Beautiful leatherwork"

Adds a very interesting and unique touch to playing dice. Very nicely made. I enjoy telling game-night guests where it came from and the symbolism behind the decoration.

"Passed the Adult Grandson Cool Test"

My adult Grandson (22 yo) and his Mom think this is awesome---cool to look at, fun to use. Its great to have a non-plastic, very cool thing, to give to a guy.

"A comforting and strong presence in my room"

This trunk has helped me organize my life by getting my odds and ends off the floor. The tooled leather seat, the interesting hardware and the lustrous wood make it a winner.

Preserving Traditions

Preserving Traditions

"At the age of 16, I joined my brother's workshop to learn to work with leather. At 21, I set up my own workshop and began to create the wood and leather designs that I am known for. I love the history that I am able to bring to my work. Since colonial times, leather and wood have been combined to create many practical and decorative pieces of furniture and art. My style is distinct and detailed. I use motifs from Peruvian culture and my workshop is known for quality. I love this art and enjoy teaching my workers the skills that were generously taught to me. Many of my workers have gone on to open their own workshops. This gives me pleasure. This is how we keep the art alive."

"I have found great success with Novica. I am now an established artisan and my work is sold around the world. I have the life I once imagined but, most importantly, I have made my family secure. My children are educated and they work with me - together we bring our love of Peruvian history and craft to a respected family project."

Moving On Up

Moving On Up

Abel no longer shares the rented patio with his chickens - the site of his first workshop. Today, the Rios family has bought that house and built a four story workshop on the adjacent land. They employ other artisans to help meet the international demand for their handcrafted products.

Working with Disabilities

Working with Disabilities

Abel is determined to give back - to share the good fortune that he has found. He employs two people who have thrived in the supportive environment his workshop provides. His assistant is intellectually challenged and one of his wood carvers is profoundly deaf.
