This sink is from Native Trails and is constructed of hammered Copper...I can just see this sink filled with ice and bottles of wine or champagne chilling for the evening. Or as a prep sink, it lends to a unique feel. Sure to be the talk amongst your friends!
According to their site, check out these benefits: Recent studies have shown that copper has remarkable natural antibacterial properties which actually kill dangerous bacteria such as E. coli in a matter of hours, while stainless steel and other traditional surfaces allow them to survive for weeks. Enjoy the "living” qualities of your beautiful hand hammered bowl and feel proud to own a unique and functional work of art!
