Forged iron hardware in hacienda style is quite unique. Hardware is a copy of original old Spanish designs that originated in Europe long before discovery of Americas. At the present day very little forged iron hardware is produced on the old continent and the US. The only source still cultivating the tradition is central Mexico and especially Queretaro, Guanajuato and Michoacan states. All kind of rustic hardware items are forged out of iron including door locks. hinges, pull-knobs among others. Often used finishing is naturally rusted metal. Once it is oxidized to the desired state the products are varnished to prevent further oxidation and making the hardware easy to clean.
