Calabash is made from the hard shell of a fruit in the gourd family “Lagenaria siceraria.” Once the calabash is dried and hollowed out it can be used for serving or storing food & drinks. It can also be used as an inkpot, jewelry bowl, cosmetic container, and by market women as a money box. Aside from the use as containers, calabashes are frequently adapted as musical instruments such as the flute, violin, harp, xylophone, and rattle.

Calabash can last a lifetime once it is handled with care and dried out after every use.

PS – Because calabash is handmade by Nature, size and shape may vary.
