Cuia de Tacacá - Brazilian Gourd Bowl
Since I have been traveling to the north of Brazil I have been in love with these bowls.
They are handmade from a fruit by local river communities, man usually harvest the fruit and women make the cuias. The art in them change from area to area depending on the tribal heritage of the region. These cuias have the art of Marajó island.
They are light, beautiful, fun and have many uses, they also look great in pictures. On the "let's save the world" side of it: they are wild harvested, biodegradable and fair trade. They come with a support base basket, also made in the region.
I absolutely get a kick out of the fact they use these cuias almost exclusively for a northern dish called "Tacacá", when I ask to have my acai in a cuia they look at me like I lost my mind... At my place I have chosen to use it for pretty much everything including my infamous crazy clay mask blends...
Since cuias are actual fruits, their size and shape vary from cuia to cuia. All designs are one of a kind and I am sure you will love the one you receive.
