Cobre — meaning “copper” in Spanish — is an art form dating back to the pre-Columbian times of Central Mexico. The hand-hammered copper is made from reclaimed material that has been fairly traded since 1994. The art form is in those of the Arts & Crafts and Mission styles. Long ago, the process was used to make weapons as well as housewares, but today, our company and the local artisans of Central Mexico with whom we team up create only the most beautiful of domestic implements, such as vases, sinks, trays, and bowls.
