Everything on Nature’s Time.

The Japanese philosophy of sabi perfectly encapsulates the experience of drinking mate from a natural calabash gourd. Sprouted from the raw earth, bursting with rain water, then hollowed and dried, the calabash cup tells a story of time, showing Nature’s marks of imperfections with rusty hues, subtle textures, and cute dimples, across a natural shimmering butter-smooth patina.

Sabi Cup Original - Calabash Yerba Mate Kit
We don't like everything that shines, but we do prefer a pensive lustre to shallow brilliance, a murky light that, whether in a stone or an artefact, bespeaks a sheen of antiquity…. We do love things that bear the marks of grime, soot, and weather, and we love the colours and the sheen that call to mind the past that made them. In Praise of Shadows, Tanizaki

It all started with the calabash
