These beautiful, handcrafted mate gourds are made out of real calabashes. Hand-painted with brass details, they are imported from artisans in Argentina.
These natural gourds are the way yerba mate was enjoyed by the indigenous Indians in South America who first discovered its miraculous properties. Each one is unique and gives a natural and authentic feel to the experience of drinking mate.
Care: Always dry your gourd over night. Dump out the used yerba leaves, rinse out, and then leave upright for the gourd to dry.
Add on a bombilla for a complete yerba mate starter kit. A bombilla is a metal straw used to sip yerba. One end is the mouthpiece and the other end is placed in the leaves and is used as a strainer to filter out the yerba leaves.
