The solid-wood furniture here is handcrafted by Peruvian artisans who have been trained by Italian craftsmen in a program set up in Peru by a non-profit organization that gives free room, board and schooling to orphans and poor children in the Peruvian Andes. (One-hundred percent of the profits go back to the artisans and their communities.) This "Marañon" telephone table ($1,300) can be ordered in different woods. Artesanos Don Bosco is at 828 S. Charles St. Call 410-563-4577 or go to artesanosdonbosco.com.
