Our Work Tops

Travertine Stone Tops

Our travertine has an overall peach tone with some veining and color movement from rose to rust. Veining is a natural phenomenon which enhances the beauty of the stone and makes each top unique. We offered in different edges: Double Straight, Bull Nosed and Chiseled.

Every piece of Travertine Top is proudly handcrafted on an exclusive quarry in South Mexico. Imagine that the making of each piece has been formed over a thousand years. Of course, at acquiring one of these tops, you are obtaining a One of a Kind Piece. Our Travertine is 2” thick.

Ideal for OUTDOOR USE.

Mesquite Wood Tops

The panels and molding are hand cut. Mesquite undergoes very little shrinking or swelling. Oak shrinks and swells about 8 times as much as mesquite. All of our mesquite tops are sealed with Polyurethane. Mesquite has a swirling grain, colors and occasional wood grain defects offer a hidden treasure. Tops are offered in different edges: Beveled, Scalloped, Rounded Corners and Free Form. Thickness varies 1 ½“for smaller pieces and 2 ½” to 3” for larger pieces. Mesquite tops are for INDOOR ONLY.

Hammered Copper Tops

The HAMMERED COPPER TOPS has two variations, Natural finish or the Old World look Oxidized.

HAMMERED COPPER NATURAL FINISH: The Copper is fired, giving an individual and one of a kind finish from reddish to black patina. The copper is then wrapper around and glued to a plywood base. The copper top is protected with multiple coats of acrylic lacquer used on automobiles. Our copper tops do not change color over time. Thickness varies 1½” in smaller pieces to 3” on larger pieces.

NAILS AVAILABLE UP ON REQUEST.

Our Leather Work

Our full grain leather is the best investment that you can possibly make. Mexico’s Tanneries were ranked 2nd best in all North and South America in 2013. Our full-grain, pure aniline Chocolate leather is hand-tanned in Mexico at a 100 years old tannery tumbled for nearly a day to achieve a warm finish.

The purity of water used during the time-intensive process gives the leather a buttery-soft feel. Over time and with wear, the leather will develop a lighter patina and soft, supple hand. All the marks, scrapes and scars or the cow’s brand, here and there found on your chair lend a tremendous amount of Character to it and variations in color and texture make each piece unique.

COWHIDE (EXOTIC TRICOLOR BRINDLE)

All of these “natural colored” cowhides come from Brazil, the country that unquestionably produces the finest quality cowhides in the world. The leather of each one of our cowhides is very supple and soft, unlike so many other cowhides on the market today that can actually be quite stiff. In addition, our manufacturers do not use any of the harsh tanning solutions that can produce the unpleasant smell that many other cowhide products commonly have. Please keep in mind that 98% of all cowhides have patching and sewing in them. These markings are just part of “being a cow”.

REMARKS

Hair-on hides are natural and undyed. Inherent variations in coloring, hair length and texture make each hide unique and each piece one-of-a-kind; no two chairs or benches are exactly alike.

BLACK STRIPED STENCILED ZEBRA ON NATURAL OFF WHITE COWHIDE

This Brazilian hide is a black striped stenciled zebra on natural off white. All of our “stenciled” animal print cowhides come from Brazil, the country that unquestionably produces some of the finest quality cowhides in the world. Each of the designs are “stenciled” onto a naturally colored cowhide. They will have the normal amount of shading, speckling and patching that 97% of all hides have. They will very likely be softer than what most companies have, as they come from one of the two best factories in Brazil.

They will have the least amount of the natural shading, speckling and markings that all cowhides have. Concerning color, since real zebras are not pure white but rather off white, these off white cowhides will look very realistic.

Our Bases Work

Iron Bases

The Wrought Iron offered by Mexports By SM is hand crafted. Slight variations in the size, color and appearance should be considered as natural characteristics of hand crafted merchandise.

The metal bases are made by hand, by Mexican Blacksmiths. Each piece of metal is heated using a traditional charcoal fire. It is then hand hammered on an anvil and carefully crafted to form the unique and delicate looking bases. All our bases are hand painted in a “Rust Dark Brown” Finish.

Pine Wood Bases

Vintage Line

The Vintage Color Line is an entirely different collection. Since the beginning of Mexports by Susana Molina, we’ve been using wrought iron bases for our dining tables. But, we are in a constant search of distinct and different designs so we fell in love with the idea of creating a dining table with a wood base that would give us flexibility in the color of the base. And our Vintage Line did the job. Available in a variety of coloration, from the Vintage Silver to the Imperial Red, this collection lets you mix and match a wide assortment of combinations when choosing your top.
