The Rich Burgundy Leather Experience

The Gauchos of Brazil and Farmers are acutely conscious of using every part of the cow and the burgundy leather used to handcrafted these lightweight cuias is no exception. Experience the buttery smooth hand of this exquisite leather with every sip. Ervas and yerbas both pair well. The cuia is exceptionally light, accented with an oversized stainless steel brim for a modern chic look that hasn’t lost its deeply driven roots of the Rio Grande do Sul State of Brazil where erva mate lies at the heart of culture. The craftsmanship and artistry of these locally produced pieces won’t go unnoticed.

The Way of the Gauchos

With a hybrid form between the wider traditional Uruguayan Calabash and larger Brazilian Cuia, our handcrafted cups, finely wrapped with rich burgundy leather, are a modern representation of the classical cuia with a fresh twist. These natural vessels have been cherished for their special relationship with erva for millenia. It’s hard to find a better vessel than the calabash gourd, also known as a cuia, for enjoying yerba mate. Each piece is unique, with beautiful shape and color variances.

Allow the Natural Curing Process

No need to cure your cuia with any particular method. The vessel will naturally cure on its own, within three months, depending on your climate (faster in drier weather). Some mold and mildew is perfectly normal, as the excess plant material inside the vessel breaks down with use. After several weeks, you’ll notice a uniform dark hue and the cuia will begin to dry rapidly after each use. Most mate drinkers continue to use the cuia throughout the entire process, but you may also alternate between vessels during this process. If you are totally against mold and oxidation, then we recommend you select a metal or wooden vessel.
