Julio Sanchez from Peru

Artisan Julio Sanchez Peru's Julio Sanchez says, 'My uncle was a was a master craftsman who worked with wood and leather, and I learned from him. When I was just 12, he let me begin finishing small pieces like leather trunks and jewelry boxes. I loved the work so much that I'd swipe pieces of leather from other people in the workshop to practice leather embossing on my own. My art is a family heritage, handed down over generations.'
