Harvested from reclaimed Lignum Vitae wood in Jamaica, our Lignam Originals are over 80 years old. Individually hand-crafted from the hardest wood on Earth, these predominantly blonde gourds are true art pieces. No cup is the same. We held back from selling these in our original Lignam Collection in 2013 because the cups had defects and cracks which prevent drinking mate from them. However, after years of peaceful sleep in our storage, we've decided to release these beauties to the world in a highly limited 5 cup collection.
