DetailsHigh in the mountains of Michoacán lives a skilled artisan practicing a dying trade. Like his grandfather and father before him, Salcedo is a master copper craftsman.
"I love what I do. Working outside with the copper and my hands. It makes me happy and keeps me young."
Salcedo's wife, Carmen, sells his creations to visiting tourists. It's a hard life relying on the uncertainty of street sales - at Luso Trading Co. we're trying to change that.
Each item is mounted on a kraft hang tag/information card, wrapped in tissue paper, and packaged in a mini burlap gift bag.
EACH ONE OF THESE IS A HANDMADE PIECE OF ART. SMALL VARIATIONS MAY EXIST FROM ITEM TO ITEM. THE EXAMPLE PICTURED IS NOT THE EXACT ONE YOU WILL RECEIVE.
