A unique Kuripe
A unique Kuripe pipe, from the Yawanawa tribe in Brazil, made by artisans with a high level of craftsmanship.
Traditionally in the amazon, Rapé is applied by using a pipe to blow through each nostril on both sides. It can be self-administered using a self-applicator pipe which connects the mouth to the nostrils. It can also be administered by another person using a blow pipe which connects the blower’s mouth to the other person’s nostrils. The self-applicator pipe is known as a ‘kuripe’ and the blow pipe is known as a ‘tepi’.
