Songbirds twitter softly on leafy branches in an idyllic Andean portrait. Embossed on burnished leather, the cheery motifs grace a handmade magazine rack. Oscar Pastor crafts the piece from wood with two handy compartments to organize reading material. A handle of turned mahogany carries it from room to room.
Oscar suffered from depression and worry about not being able to support his family. He would walk on the streets, going door to door trying to sell his designs. His income has increased over three times since joining Novica and he is now able to rely on the sales of his designs to pay for household essentials and to support his daughters' educations.
Since the introduction of handcrafted leather by the Spaniards during the colonial period, Peruvian culture has added its own twist with cultural designs and local materials. Oscar uses the traditions of handcrafted leather in his work, keeping the technique alive for future generations to enjoy.
Oscar's sales help provide and support his two daughters' education, giving them access to opportunities they didn't have before.
Oscar treasures his two daughters, Cheli and Maria Jose, and he does everything he can to provide a better life for them.
