BEAUTIFUL AND UNIQUE HANDCARVED MATE GOURD & BOMBILLA SET
LIMITED EDITION – ONLY 10 UNITS AVAILABLE
What really makes us human are words, language. Concepts, ideas, create our world. They give us spiritual beauty. Something as necessary as our daily yerba mate.
In many of Julio Cortazar pages, the ritual of drinking mate acquires almost metaphysical proportions.
The phrase that is carved belongs to his most famous novel: “Rayuela”, published in 1967 :
“El mate, pulmón argentino de respuesto para solitarios y tristes”
PERFECT GIFT TO YOURSELF OR OTHERS !
Note: We can carve your own phrase if it is not too long. Please, email us.
GOURD’s SIZE : 3.5″ (inches) – 9 (cm) H / 3.5″ (inches) – 9 (cm) W
GOURD´S CAPACITY : Will hold aprox 2oz of dried loose Yerba.
BOMBILLA’S LENGTH : 7″ (inches) – 18 (cm) – (Stainless Steel)
Each mate gourd / cup should be filled with Yerba a little over 2/3 of it’s capacity. Remember to leave a slight slope and insert the bombilla at the bottom of the slope. Once the bombilla is in place, you are ready to pour the water on that side of the gourd (remember not to let your water boil) for each serving. The volumen measure showing above in bold is based on this suggestion.
