El Dorado Imports has for 20+ years created a very successful wholesale business now headquartered in Jalisco, Mexico. We work mostly with families and indigenous groups throughout the country who have been creating these traditional products for generations. We have visited their Talleres and established our relationships based on honesty, good working conditions, quality product control and their ability to fulfill orders in a timely manner.
This art has evolved over many centuries and perfected by the Juarez family in Jalisco. For many years we have represented this amazing family for worldwide wholesale sales. These pieces are cut from different gauges of sheet metal and then are coated with drips of copper. Brass is also applied in some cases such as to the face of a fish. The brilliant colors come from the copper being heated to various temperatures. When copper is heated it can change to almost any color in the rainbow. Dripped copper runs rather than drips, so it usually forms a pool on the object rather than thin lines that cause the brilliant rainbow coloring. For 3 generations now this family has perfected this art and continues to create new designs such as geckos, suns, moons, sea creatures, kokopellis, roadrunners and many more that you can see in our catalog here.
