Story Behind the Art:
Peruvian artisan Abel Rios has been crafting leather items since he was 16. His older brother, Hector, taught him. 'When I was 23, I opened my own workshop in my house,' Abel says. 'I cut and tool 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 am especially happy and proud that my products are being sold all over the world now through the internet.'
