There are several reasons why all of the copper kitchen sinks at Copper Sinks Online are handcrafted by fine Mexican copper artisans from Santa Clara del Cobre.
1. Unsurpassed Quality
The coppersmiths of Santa Clara del Cobre are among the finest in the world, and the tradition of working copper dates back hundreds of years. We have our own copper sink workshop in this beautiful Mexican town, and our artisans will hand-hammer your custom copper kitchen sink much as their ancestors have done for many generations.
Santa Clara del Cobre, which is located in the state of Michoacan, Mexico, is world-renown for its coppersmiths. We searched throughout the globe for the best source of handmade copper kitchen sinks and have found that these hand-hammered copper sinks have the highest quality and craftsmanship.
2. 100% Lead-Free
Unfortunately, many of the copper kitchen sinks you would find at the big box stores and from other retailers can contain lead. We’ve sampled sinks from around the world and found that sinks from India and other countries do contain lead, which is quite toxic. The sinks from Santa Clara del Cobre, however, are 100% lead-free and safe for you and your family.
3. Weight Matters
When you compare one of our copper kitchen sinks to a copper kitchen sink from a big box store, you will find that our sinks are several pounds heavier. This is because all of our copper kitchen sinks are crafted from 14 gauge copper. The big box store copper kitchen sinks might claim to the 14-gauge, but the lighter weight argues otherwise. Likely, a thinner 15 or 16 gauge copper was used.
It’s important to select 14-gauge copper for your copper kitchen sink because this weightier copper can withstand heavy usage. After all, you will be washing pots, pans and much more in the sink and heavy copper wears much better over time. Our copper kitchen sinks will last far longer than a thinner gauge sink. In addition, thinner gauge copper can produce a tinny sound when water drums on the surface. With a thicker gauge, you won’t have this problem.
These are just a few reasons why we employ fine Mexican artisans to create our copper kitchen sinks. We have a wide variety of copper kitchen sinks, including standard sinks, copper farmhouse sinks, two-tone copper farmhouse sinks and prep sinks. If you don’t see exactly what you need, contact us and we can design a custom copper kitchen sink that suits your needs.
