Carved from Algarrobo wood, this Sturdy, High Quality Gourd is a real joy to hold. The South American tree species Prosopis nigra is where we get our Algarrobo wood from. It was given the name Algarrobo Negro by the early Spanish settlers which means “black carob tree” due to its similarity to the European carob tree.
The decorative artwork is engraved into the wood and adds real character and beauty to the gourd.
The gourd imparts its natural chemicals and tannings into the Yerba, giving it a unique and truly wonderful flavour.
Note: This Gourd comes with our trust worthy, high-quality stainless steel bombilla and bombilla cleaning brush.
