TIN WORK (“Hoja de Lata”) of Oaxaca City

Tin work, or “hoja de lata,” dates back to the 16th century.  It is primarily produced in the Xochimilco section of the city of Oaxaca.  A wide range of tin pieces for decorative and utilitarian use is created by the best artisans, some of which are decorated with bright colors in lacquer. Typical designs include Christmas decorations, mirrors, lamps, trees of life, candleholders, and lanterns.
