Our gourds have been created in the shadow of Mt. Hood, along the beautiful Columbia River. Gourds are vessels created by nature. They are some of the first containers that primitive man utilized to hold water, grains, seeds and household items.
Gourds grow in many shapes and sizes, which afford us an infinite variety from which to choose. After harvesting, they take up to a year to cure and dry. While drying, they develop a natural mold, which gives each gourd its beautiful color, texture and individuality. The gourds are prepared by cleaning the outside and the inside before dyes are applied. Pine needles and semi precious stones are used to embellish the gourds.
