Narrow Calabash Leather Mate Gourd
This narrow calabash gourd is great for “materos” who are looking to have a bigger mate in order to hold more yerba. The gourd is wrapped in leather then painted in different colors and should be curated like any other mate gourd (not completely necessary but suggested). The difference between these Middle line mates and the Premium Line mates lie in the metal ring & handcrafted detail. These rings are made out of aluminum, while the premium mates are made out of steel & the detail of the leather is a bit different. Nevertheless, both lines are excellent in their quality & durability!
It is very recommended that you cure the mate before beginning to use it.
