We have a variety of 3 bombillas that gives you an opportunity to experience the differnet styles.
This handmade Alpaca Silver bombilla is in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It was made by an artisan friend who creates these art pieces without the utilization of complex tools.
This artistic rendition of the Bombilla is made from Alpaca Silver. It measures 6.50 inches long. It is very easy to clean, just rinse with warm water and mild detergent. The strainer is designed so it will not get clogged with yerba mate. Alpaca Silver is not a true silver. It is an alloy of cooper, nickel, zinc and iron. This alloy has properties much like stainless steel.
Also Included in this kit is a unique commercially made 6.5 inch nickel plated Bombilla that has a detachable filter. This bombilla is equipped with a heat sink that keeps the heat away from the drinkers lips. The strainer bulb is threaded and it can be removed for easy cleaning. This is a new design that is becoming very popular with young mate drinkers. This one has a curved tip for ease of use.
We are also including a 6.375 inch bamboo bombilla. This bombilla is an example of the traditional bombilla that has been in use since the beginning.
We thought you might enjoy a variety in your mate drinking experience.
I bought this bombilla last week and absolutely love it. It is very well made, and easy to clean. I chose this bombilla as it looked to be able to last a very very longtime. The spring retracts easily for cleaning. For the extra couple of bucks its worth it to have a nice handmade instrument that cleans easily.
