Made from 100% genuine Turkish block meerschaum.

Meerschaum translates from German to English as ‘Sea Foam’. An incredibly effective material for pipes as its hard to burn out due to its heat absorbing qualities. It starts off it’s journey coming from the Black Sea, and when wet is easy to carve making it a favourite for craftsman in Turkey to display intricate patterns. Over a period of time it absorbs the nicotine, changing colour from an ivory white to a brown speckled tortoise shell pattern. The meerschaum also vitrifies over this time period, becoming ever more durable.
