Olimpia's story

Olimpia and her husband Pepe are Mexican artisans who specialize in creating copper vases, wall art and home décor. They would like to invest in the purchase of raw materials, including copper, paint and enamels. Olimpia has been selling through NOVICA since 2006.

This is her story: "Our families have worked with copper for generations now and we've been around it all our lives. That’s how we learned to create utilitarian and decorative objects from this noble metal. We design and craft casseroles, vases, bells and more. We sometimes apply a layer of gold or silver to make it more beautiful. The love and constancy we put into our work as a couple have yielded incredible fruits as we show the world a bit of our beloved state of Michoacán."

"We thank you for your interest in our art through this microcredit. Above all, thank you for your trust in us."
