$45.00

Description

Enjoy your hot cocoa with this natural bowl, or use it as a container or decor accent.

Inspired by the ancient traditions, we drink chocolate with a natural bowl called “Jícara”, the word comes from “xicalli” in Nahuatl meaning a vessel or container. The jícara was used in prehispanic times as a measure and as a cup for the higher echelons of the Aztec empire’s organization.

Our jícaras are made from a fruit shell from the calabash tree and are beautifully decorated by hand with “the maque” technique by an artisan named Filemón in Oaxaca, Mexico.

Our jícaras fit 8oz to 10oz.

*These are natural and each piece is unique, the color tone and size may vary (13-15cm diameter).
