Now in his eighties, Wilfredo continues to work, handcrafting each piece of his furniture with traditional techniques. He says simply, "My art is my life." In his early teens, Wilfredo learned the art of leatherwork in a workshop where most of the employees were profoundly deaf. Through the years, he worked his family out of extreme poverty and eventually opened his own workshop. He has taught many artisans but is most proud of passing this traditional Peruvian art to his brother Abel and his son Jose. Both Abel and Jose are also Novica artisans.

Wilfredo's Novica sales are his only source of income. He is in his eighties, lives alone and struggles to provide for himself. He still thinks of growing his workshop and is thankful for the dignity and income that come from working with Novica.

This artist is an elder master and continues to actively practice their craft.

"More than a foot stool-a piece of art!"

I've purchased a number of leather items made by the Rios family over the years and again I'm highly impressed with the quality and simplicity of design. The stool was easy to assemble requiring only wood glue and a rubber mallet. I'm going to be buying another chair soon.
