This is a traditional mate gourd from Argentina made of a hollowed out pumpkin skin. It is the most commonly used type of mate gourd in Argentina and is simple and ideal for daily use. It has a metal collar around the top to protect the pumpkin skin. As it is a natural product, the sizes and colours will vary. While using the gourd a discolouration of the pumpkin takes place. This is a natural process which occurs through the absorption of the yerba.
