  • Ambiance

    These little fellas are made of calabash tree gourds (known also as the bottle gourd and formally as Lagenaria siceraria). Skilfully cut, hollowed out, dried, polished, and sometimes hand-carved to create a unique design. The finished product is a gourd as solid as a glass cup, yet, just as fragile.

Simple care tips


Curing a gourd is very simple. Fill it with hot yerba mate and let it sit for a day, then scrape out the loose membrane and it's ready.


After each use, make sure you get rid of every bit of yerba mate in your gourd. Then place it in a sunny, cool, dry area (or upside down on heater). Never use soap. Only warm water.

If you wish to brew super healthy Yerba Mate, natural gourd is absolutely the best choice! We have a ready made set for you. The price is for Calabash (gourd) + Bombilla (metal straw easy cleanable).
