Tin hearts are a traditional craftwork of Oaxaca, their origin comes from colonial times and its teaching is still passed from generation to generation. A difficult and detailed process: once the tin is cut, the form is given, it´s embossed and it´s finished by applying lacquer and enamel to get bright colours. As this is a handcrafted product it can be slightly different from the photo: making them all and each unique, but all on the same style, and very similar to each other.
