Fair Trade since 1994
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.
