Francis's story

Francis specializes in wood carvings, and also works with leather. He would like to stock up on raw materials for use at his workshop.

Francis has been selling through NOVICA since 2003. This is his story:

Francis comes from a family of traditional wood carvers. "While at school, funding was becoming a difficulty, so during weekends and vacations I would visit my father's workshop and assist him by carving some products for sale. The realization eventually dawned on me to stay on, work on my own designs, and display my own woodcarvings. I opened a new workshop, which my sister and a cousin manage, and together we preserve the family legacy."

"I want to thank you all for your support. Your generous assistance enables us to produce the best art works for customers around the world."
