Cobre is a Fair Trade company and has been “Fairly Traded” since 1994. We currently work with 7 different workshops that employ 1 to 7 artisans. Most of the people in the workshops are related, fathers, sons, uncles, cousins. Each workshop has its own style. One shop makes only small pieces, maximum 3″ high, while another prefers to work in organic forms; pears, apples, gourds, squashes. Ramon’s work is extremely fine with thin walls, while Antonio’s work is thick-walled and monumental. Each piece is proudly signed by its creator.
