Enjoy your favourite Hot Cacao Elixir with this special drinking vessel – or use it as a container or decor accent.

This jícara is made from a fruit shell from the calabash tree. It’s decorated with “the maque” technique by a man named Filemón in Oaxaca, Mexico.

In Mexico, the word jícara comes from xicalli, a Nahuatl word meaning a vessel or container. The jícara was used in prehispanic times as a cup and also as a measure.

The color tone and size may vary (13-15cm diameter).
