"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."
"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. "My son is now 25, with a degree in business administration. My daughter Daisy is 21, and is finishing a degree in accounting. They both help me now. I began my art at the age of 16, and am now 50."
