A hummingbird hovers amid flowers to feast on their sweet nectar. Portrayed in burnished tooled leather, the graceful images adorn a diminutive chest of drawers for keepsakes and treasures. Oscar Pastor crafts the jewelry box from wood and covers it in polychrome leather with an antique finish. The drawers open with wrought iron pulls.
Oscar suffered from depression and worry about not being able to support his family. He would walk on the streets, going door to door trying to sell his designs. His income has increased over three times since joining Novica and he is now able to rely on the sales of his designs to pay for household essentials and to support his daughters' educations.
Since the introduction of handcrafted leather by the Spaniards during the colonial period, Peruvian culture has added its own twist with cultural designs and local materials. Oscar uses the traditions of handcrafted leather in his work, keeping the technique alive for future generations to enjoy.
Oscar's sales help provide and support his two daughters' education, giving them access to opportunities they didn't have before.
Oscar treasures his two daughters, Cheli and Maria Jose, and he does everything he can to provide a better life for them.
