A Relic of Time

Tucan Alpaca looks like it could have been around since the 18th century, passed from hand-to-hand in an opulent tea parlor of a Spanish or Portuguese royal. Every element, from the spoon with asymmetrical filter dotting to the center ring handle, see the marks of the Argentine Artisan who spent time and care handcrafting this most integral instrument of yerba mate. Each piece is unique with distressed and imperfect marks of the crafting process.
