Coronilla (Scutia Buxifolia)


Coronilla is a strong, short and thorny tree (shrub). It grows very slowly, hardly 2 mm a year (a 25 diameter branch is 125 year old) in the wild forest by the shore of rivers in Uruguay.

When the tide goes down, coronilla roots- a perfect raw material to shape pipes- appear.

Because of the way it ages, this type of root becomes perfect to make pipes. It ages slowly in open air and under the action of wheather and mineral elements of the river. It is perfect for the smoke, as it doesn’t burn nor warm up or crack.
