The story of my shop!

I started working with wood 20 years ago in my father´s shop. He owned a small family-run furniture shop in Managua, Nicaragua where I learned the basics and fell in love with with everything that had to do with artistic designs in wood.

Although I started designing furniture I always loved jewelry and artistic pieces. I started making new pieces and convinced my father to start selling them in his shop, and that is how it all began. Years latter I had my own little shop where I made all sorts of interesting pieces that started to sell in local markets and retail stores. My little shop has grown over the years and we export artistic pieces to many countries around the world. I have incorporated other wood turners and designers to my team so that I can cover the demand we have and it has been a wonderful experience for us. I am glad to say that my father now works works with me as my mentor and guide.

A few years back we started with our Esty store exploring new opportunities and never looked back. After all these years we are still very passionate about wood and wood design and we are so exited for the future of our shop. We are very lucky to have such a talented team and to be able to work with the most beautiful woods in the world!
