Native Trails Unveils New Copper Trough Sinks


SAN LUIS OBISPO, CALIF.—Native Trails, known for its artisan-made kitchen and bath products, has added several new items to its copper sink collection for 2015. Copper Trough sinks build on the momentum created by the company’s recent NativeStone concrete trough sink introduction, by utilizing hand-hammered copper in the popular sink shape. Available in 30”, 36” and 48” widths, these new products will be available in June 2015.

The Copper Trough Collection is hand made by coppersmiths residing in a small Mexican village. Hand hammered thousands of times over several days, the sinks retain the hallmarks of their artisan craftsmanship in a modern aesthetic. The 48” width double sink is particularly suitable to larger master baths. All sizes are available in an Antique or Brushed Nickel finish and they are forged to be used as either a drop-in or undermount basin.

“Native Trails is known for our hand-hammered copper sinks that marry centuries-old artisan tradition with contemporary design,” said Naomi Neilson Howard, founder and CEO of Native Trails. “Customers have been asking for larger sizes that are practical and also deliver that ‘wow’ factor. The combination of the hammered texture with the clean lines of a trough shape create a focal point for any bathroom and are on-trend to meet today’s demand for understated elegance in the bathroom.”

The artisans who create the sinks are known globally as leaders in coppersmithing. These families have passed their talents down from generation to generation, and Native Trails often works with multiple generations of artisans from the same family. All Copper Trough sinks are made from recycled copper, underscoring Native Trails’ stance on sustainable living and manufacturing.
