The Story Behind the Art:

Moises Alvarez Santti was born in the region of Ayacucho, Peru, on July 18, 1958. When he turned 15 years old, he moved to Lima to study leather and woodcrafts under the guidance of his uncle.
After six years of apprenticeship I felt ready to start a workshop with my brother, Moises explains. Sadly, my brother passed away in 1980. Meanwhile, I was left with the huge responsibility of carrying on with the day-to-day activities of running the workshop. I've managed to maintain our business through a lot of hard work. And in doing so, I proudly honor his memory.
To me, my art is the way through which I can express my country's culture, just like my ancestors did. I want to preserve our history and our culture so that it will survive the passing of time while transmitting the essence of Peru.

  • not impressed

    it was a nightmare putting this thing together and then I broke one of the little stumps off the leg. I actually don't like the "claws" at the bottom of the legs.

  • Very functional and a nice artistic touch to our f

    My husband and I are thrilled with this stool. I am using it as an ottoman as I write this review. This piece is very functional as it is also a comfortable additional seat, or end table as well as an ottoman. The workmanship is beautiful and blends in well with our other items of interest from various places we or friends have visited. We are also pleased to be supporting fair trade artisans. The packaging was excellent, the best I have ever seen. The stool was treated as a fine work of art. This was a win-win purchase.

  • Love it!

    Truly a beautiful piece! I wasn't strong enough to put it together myself (the legs fit snuggly into carved notches and needed more muscle than I have to get them in place), but my 22 yr old son was albe to do it without too much trouble. We are using is both as an ottoman and as additional seating by the fireplace. It's VERY sturdy & gets lots of compliments!

  • This is a beautiful stool.

    This is a beautiful stool and the directions for putting it together were good. It would have been more helpful to have the last instruction about the use of glue as the first instruction! I have osteoarthritis in my hands and was still able to put the stool together.

  • Absolutly Amazing

    I was so impressed with this stool, it is really a work of art. It is heavy, sturdy and made with so much thought and care. I was worried about the assembly but what it is, is the legs have a extra piece of wood that slides into a hole on the other side. Some reccomend putting a little wood glue into the hole to make it more sturdy but it doesn't make a difference in my opinion. The leather seat is so thick and the art work on it is just amazing. This stool could easily sell for double the price for the quality and size. I use mine as a stool by my front door and also as an ottoman in my living room. I am so happy yet again with!!!

  • asiajumbo

    We wanted a small size furniture to fill in an open space close to the fireplace in our multi-culture themed living room. We also wanted it to be able to use it as extra seat or serving tray holder whenever it's needed.It really works well both ways. It's otherwise a piece of art sitting against our warm toned wall.

  • Absolutely beautiful!

    The craftsmanship on this stool is amazing! It's truly a work of art. My only issue, if you can call it that, is that the stool is larger than I pictured it in my mind. I planned to use this as a foot stool, but it's quite large and more suitable to use as seating or as an accent table. I will definitely check out the other items made by Moises Alvarez Santti.

  • Beautiful Stool

    The tooling on the leather seat is really beautiful, as is the carving on the wood legs. Well-crafted, sturdy. Easy to assemble, but remember to have wood glue on hand.

  • Gorgeous!

    Gorgeous! I can't believe I never reviewed my favorite possession. The richness and authenticity of the work shames anything machine-made. It's a stool, high enough for seating comfort, and an ottoman as well. It also can serve as a table; I would eat soup from it, but I have served coffee. The colorful embossed leather begs you to stroke it. Gorgeous!

  • Why did you choose this product?

    • Will go well in my living room

  • I got the chair but couldn't put it together. It seems that the leather seat may be a little too small/tight to stretch it across to reach the last of the 4 holes. Any suggestions?
