Carefully hewn cedar wood braces together in an ergonomic symphony as the material's magical grain pulsates beneath a coating of walnut-colored lacquer. Abel Rios accents this handcrafted rocking chair with a boldly embossed leather seat and back, the stark border contrasting a smooth central plain. Easily disassembled, the chair makes an excellent acquisition for lazy evenings on your front porch.
About the Artist: Peruvian artisan Abel Rios has been crafting leather items since he was 16. His older brother, Hector, taught him. 'When I was 23, I opened my own workshop in my house,' Abel says. 'I cut and tool fine leather with a distinct style and skill that you won't find in many workshops. I design many beautiful Inca and colonial motifs, and emboss those upon the leather. I am especially happy and proud that my products are being sold all over the world now through the internet.'
The Abel Rios Artisan Collection is brought to you by Novica in Association with National Geographic. This beautiful piece was handcrafted by Abel Rios in Peru. An artisan story card will be included with your purchase.
