Lavishly embellished with floral motifs in rich, tooled leader, this chest evokes colonial elegance. Crafted by hand of fragrant cedar wood, it makes a hope chest of extraordinary beauty, or stores linens or keepsakes. The elaborate hardware is wrought in bronze. The Rios Family shows classic style and traditional techniques in creating their beautiful decorative items.
Rios Family has received 9 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $600 and the most recent for $2850. Proceeds were used to invest in the purchase of quality leather and wood to increase production.
This artist uses traditional techniques handed down through the generations and/or creates culturally significant items, helping keep these traditions alive.
The hand tooling of the leather on this piece took my breath away, so I decided to give it to my dear friend as a housewarming gift and she loved it. The craftsmanship can?t be beat and it is truly heirloom quality.
