    Story Behind The Art:

    I have dedicated myself to crafting fine leather products since the age of 16. Initially, I began by helping my older brother Héctor in his leather workshop after he asked me to come to work for him. With my older brother's generous and providential offer, I learned the wondrous art of leather work - a trade that continues to fascinate me and consume most of my days. 

    When I was 23 years old I decided to become an independent artisan. I opened my own workshop in my house. Fortunately, my work has gained considerable popularity, and I greatly enjoy the responses that I continue to receive when people see my creations. 

    These days, my work consists of cutting, embossing and engraving fine leather with a distinct style and skill that you won't find in many workshops. I design many beautiful Inca and colonial motifs, and emboss those upon the leather. I sell some of my work locally to art shops, but am especially happy and proud that my products are being sold all over the world now through Novica. 

    Before I began to work with Novica, I had my workshop in the back patio of my home, with no floor, surrounded by the chickens we raised to feed our family. I didn't have the necessary tools. I am proud of what I have achieved during these recent years, all thanks to Novica.

    Since joining Novica eight years ago, I have become a prosperous businessman, and my children are now educated professionals who work with me. Eight years go, I brought my work to Novica, and, little by little, began to sell more and to extend my line of designs. This permitted me to better care for my family, and to invest in my workshop. 

    In time, I was able to rent a house nearby, where I moved my furniture crafting business. I bought equipment and my workshop began to grow. With more orders and customers, I was able to hire helpers, improve my designs, research new techniques, and use better raw materials, always working hand-in-hand with Novica. Eventually I bought the house I had been renting. Three years ago, I bought the land next door, where I built a new three-story workshop.

    • Great accent stool
      Verified Purchase

      This stool is a great accent piece in my living room. It is a deep, rich brown color and has a breautiful leather seat. It is exactly the 12D x 12H as described online, which is a perfect size for a small area where I needed an accent piece. It assembled in minutes and I didn't need any tools. What could be easier? There was about a week's wait because it was coming from Workdstock Handcrafted. But well worth the wait. A great value!

      I bought this piece to serve as a stool for my Peruvian rocking chair purchased in the Novica section of overstock. The craftsmanship is excellent and matches well with the rocking chair. It is slighty darker but looks great.

      Nice piece of art.........put together easily, not sure if strong enough to handle any weight even that of a child. Somewhat overpriced I think, but I purchased as the art it is and the workmanship is nice

    • Good Enough
      Verified Purchase

      This little footstool is the right height and dimension for my small living room in an Appalachian bungalow. The style blends well with my very eclectic mix of antiques, oil paintings, and modern coffee table. I took off a point, however, because it came not assembled and required wood glue for the legs to be stable after screwing them in Although I could have done this myself, my husband, a professional tradesman, did the gluing for me. I felt that the product description online should have indicated a need for wood glue, which everyone may not have lying around. I took off another star because the leather and wood were so shiny they looked fake to me, especially the leather. What I did was first buff the leather seat with very fine steel wool to remove the shine; then I put a layer of mat cordovan shoe polish over it, and then buffed the polish in. Now, I think the whole stool looks more authentic. I am going to purchase some dark brown or black mat shoe polish and apply a coat, and buff it in with fine steel wool to bring out the leather tooling, which is pretty. I know the shiny thing is a matter of personal preference, so perhaps a whole star off is a little bit much. I would, however, buy this stool as a gift or purchase another if I needed one, because the style and size is great. It may not work as a side table with out a plate or tray, because of the tooling being raised up. But I think it is sturdy enough (with the wood glue) to be a little fireplace stool for a person to sit on, if they are not too terribly large.

      I love the quality of this stool. The leather is very firm. If you have cats that love to dig their claws in it, it will not work and that is just what I needed. The stool was simple to put together and the delivery was excellent (packed well) and arrived within a few days. I would recommend this product to everyone.
