The hand carving process uses knives and machetes to shape the copal tree wood, with expert painters creating designs unique to each artist. They may be cleaned with a dry or wet cloth. San Martin Tilcajete is a community that concerns itself with the environment, and we reforest our raw materials such as the copal tree.
