These pipes are made of high quality Eskisehir Meerschaum. Meerschaum is a very rare mineral, a kind of hard white clay. Light and porous structure of the pipe keeps the smoke cool and soft. The pipe itself is a natural filter which absorbs the nicotine. Because of this peculiarity, meerschaum pipes slowly change their colors to different tones of gold and dark brown. The longer a pipe is smoked the more valuable it becomes due to the color change. Every pipe comes in a completely custom fitted case. Meerschaum is the most flavorful and beautiful pipe you can own.
