- Blue (last 1)
Just as in the use of tabacco, our traditional smoking pipe is copied different
Indian tribes. They considered their pipe holy, their connection between heaven
and earth. Pipes were also used in Asia, Africa and India. The Aztecs used a
hollow piece of reed to smoke with. One day somebody had an idea to put a bowl
on it . The pipe was born.
From the 15th century onwards, the pipe has flourished in Europe. The pipes
that were being used at that time, were made totally of clay, like our Gouda
pipes, with their long stems. Nowadays, pipes are made of nearly all sorts of
material like glass, stone, metal, wood and bamboo. Each of these materials
has it's own pro's and con's. The consumer mostly chooses the model that they
like best or which is easiest to clean.
