Located in San Luis Obispo, California, Native Trails has been making high quality, artisan crafted kitchen, bath fixtures and home décor for over 16 years. Now, the company is introducing a full collection of hand hammered, eco-friendly copper range hoods, underlining the brand commitment to bringing beautifully functional, artisan crafted, sustainable furnishings into the home.
Realizing that many of today luxury kitchens are equipped with high powered, commercial-grade ovens, Native Trails conceived an ideal partnership - artisan crafted copper paired with a professional grade ventilation and lighting system. Hood and flue are one single artisan crafted piece - not separate components like many other hoods on the market today.
Native Trails hand crafted range hoods are made from sturdy 16 gauge post-consumer recycled copper and hammered by artisans who use centuries old techniques. A malleable material, copper beautifully showcases talented artisans skillful hammer strokes. In addition, copper has been proven to effectively kill bacteria, making it an exceptional surface in the kitchen.
To maintain the artisan tradition, each hood is signed by the individual artisan who made it. Each standard size hood measures 36" wide. However, Native Trails is known for its custom capabilities. Custom flue lengths and sizes, including island hoods, are all possibilities. Beautiful alone or as a complement to a Native Trails kitchen sink, these range hoods are exceptional in quality and are dazzling to behold.
Native Trails range hoods are equipped with a 600 CFM stainless steel industrial baffle filtration system, offering a quiet but powerful means of ventilation along with high grade variable halogen lighting. In addition, the ventilation system is fully adjustable, allowing the user to adapt to the right setting depending on desired usage. Baffles used for filtration are easy to clean and remove - and, in fact, are dishwasher safe.
