Once upon a time in Santa Clara del Cobre...

Copper Vase

The town of Santa Clara del Cobre in Michoacán is famous for its copper (cobre in Spanish). 

When the Spanish arrived, they found a community of indigenous people creating beautiful objects out of hammered copper. The craft continued to flourish from the 1500s until well into the 19th century. After a period of economic hardship, today the craft and products are thriving again and the region is now recognised around the world for its remarkable copper artisans.

Our hand-hammered copper bottles and vases – shown here being hammered, shaped over fire and hand finished – are made by these same local Santa Clara del Cobre skilled artisans supporting their local community and skilling up future generations.
