Ricardo and Kareen
“Hello, we are husband and wife artisans Ricardo Geldres Piumatti and Kareen Nishimura Doy. We fell in love here in the capital of Lima, Peru; and together we give life to this great eco-friendly project, uniting our talents and creativity.
“We consider ourselves to be creative people who seek to give a second opportunity to everything that has been thrown away. We recycle, we reclaim, and we hope to share our ideas with the world through our art.
“Our hopes and dreams are that our products reference both local and international environmental design, making sure that our initiative is sustainable in this day and age. We contribute to the community by generating more awareness for recycled and reclaimed materials, materials from renewable sources, as well as unconventional materials; and by making a statement about sustainability in each design.
“Our art is based in continual exploration. We study a lot in order to create each piece, inspired by experience and creativity. It is a complicated task, but we love designing, developing, and creating prototypes for each piece. We work on every last detail in each one of our creations. We work as a team. We love that we are able to continue achieving and discovering new things. Our inspiration, without a doubt, is our local culture. It is so rich and so full of life and colors. From its people to its traditions, it is impossible not to fall in love with our country.
“Our motto is to bring a message of responsible consumption and sustainability, not only at the local level, but at the international level as well. We love being a part of the Novica family, and we are ready to share our philosophy with the world.”
