Details

Wilfredo Rios pays tribute to Peru's ancient Inca civilization with this superbly crafted accent table. Adorned with finely tooled leather, it is created from mohena wood — similar in grain to mahogany. The motifs depict mysterious men with the heads of birds, originally carved into stone in the fortress of Tiahuanaco.

"I use this foot rest every day!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This stool is a really great addition to my living room. Not only does it look amazing but it is also very functional. I use it every day while sitting in my recliner. It has a few wear marks on it but it just gives it character. I didnt buy it for looks alone but I have received many compliments about this piece. I love it!

"Heirloom quality jewelry chest"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

So aesthetically satisfying to look at on my counter. I enjoyed organizing my jewelry after lining the drawers with black felt paper. The chest is a redwood color with exquisite leather scrolling (no mirror inside, which I like because I would not use it) with one large storage drawer on top, and nine drawers that open, but do not come all the way out, so you can not drop the drawers. I love looking at and using it. I splurged to buy it for myself and am so glad I did.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

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.

Wilfredo Rios has received 4 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $600 and the most recent for $2050. Proceeds were used to invest in the purchase of raw materials for his crafts business.

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