Decorating outdoor patio or veranda with rustic furniture might be a challenge. Dining tables and chairs produced in Asia even though made of cast aluminum are fragile. What about Mexican stuff? Well, rustic metal furniture are produced mostly in state of Michoacan and Jalisco. They are thick, heavy, will not collapse under your weight. The difference is mainly in the production techniques. While Chinese use modern technology allowing them metal casting with very little material, down in Mexico they use sand forms that require pouring much more aluminum making the furniture automatically stronger.
