Oscar's story

Oscar is an artisan from Peru who specializes in leather home accents. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of cedar, mohena and tornillo wood, as well as leather, varnish and sealant.
Oscar has been selling through NOVICA since 2004. This is his story:

When Oscar was 10 years old his father died, leaving him no choice but to work at different jobs. One day, when he was 12, he came upon a carpentry shop where he discovered his vocation for working with wood and leather. He resolved to master the craft, and he did so on his own, learning each step and improving every detail. Now Oscar has his own workshop. He sees his work as an art form, not just something to be sold, and his work fills his life in a way he cannot explain.

"I'd like to thank each of you for your support and let you know that I am fully dedicated to crafting a product of the highest quality. I pour my love and time into each piece so that my customers may appreciate the richness of Peruvian craftsmanship."
