Story Behind the Art:
Joao Carlos Silva grew up in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. 'Thinking back to my childhood days, I realized that crafting leather goods has always been present in my life. My uncles produced all sorts of leather baskets for their own use, as well as musical instruments. I was only a child, but I was always curious and observed them at work. Then, as if dictated by destiny, I found myself obtaining the necessary permits to sell my own leather bags!'
