This dope bong originated from the BaTonga people of Zimbabwe. This BaTonga Gourd Pipe is handmade out of an actual gourd and is decorated by beaded art, made by Zulu tribeswomen. The artistry at the top of the chamber and bottom of the neck looks like a traditional necklace. A marble bowl is included with the bong, its deep to allow for generous packing. Considering these bongs are made out of gourds and grown on vines, their size and shape can vary. They are approx 11'' inches tall. Primitive Pipes is a bit more sophisticated yet still sticks to its roots. A silicone downstem reaches into the chamber to diffuse your smoke. Between the removable downstem and the beeswax lining, the African BaTonga Gourd Pipe from Primitive Pipes hits like a champ. DO NOT USE HOT WATER OR CHEMICALS WHEN CLEANING. This can result in the lining being stripped. Only clean with cold water. Bowl color varies.
