Superbly crafted to emulate a prized antique, this chest comes from Antonio Rojas. He carves, crafts and paints it by hand to house keepsakes or jewelry. A colonial medallion and gleaming gilt enhance its elegant presence.
Antonio Rojas has received 11 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $300 and the most recent for $1100. Proceeds were used to stock up on materials to craft his products, and also to invest in tools for his workshop.
This artist uses traditional techniques handed down through the generations and/or creates culturally significant items, helping keep these traditions alive.
