:: LEATHER GOODS
The first superb works of leather were made during colonial times: chests, armchairs and a tremendous variety of saddles,harnesses and other riding pieces. The decorative motifs were developed using painting, soaking and embossing, ever inspired by the dominating Baroque art of the era.
Today artisans continue to make the same objects, especially chairs, armchairs, tables and chests, where decorations involve traditional themes. Puno artisans also make leather little horses featuring a beautiful and tender naive style.
