Antonio's story

Antonio is a Peruvian artisan who specializes in wood mirrors, jewelry boxes and home decor. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of wood for his designs.

Antonio has been selling through NOVICA since 2005. This is his story:

"I'd describe my work as life itself, and my existence together with it. When I was only 17, I created my first piece and it was an immense satisfaction. Art guides my hands in that moment of pleasure as I begin a design. My pieces are inspired by the olden times and reflect the style of vintage pieces. They transmit my love for life and for nature — its flowers, birds and all the rich flora and fauna of our country."

"I'd like to use this microcredit to take advantage of the warm season and acquire wood for my handicrafts. I'd also like to add some new designs to my collection. Thanks so much for your unconditional support."
