Gourds Gourds

Our carved gourds, coins and bowls (or maté burilados, in Peruvian Spanish) are sourced directly from the carvers in a tiny town in the Andean region of Junin, Peru. These works of art are created by engraving delicate patterns into gourds, and then are stained with ash and oil, and sometimes pigment.
