Yerba mate is a traditional South American drink that's spread throughout the world, and Pulso mate vessels have stepped up to accommodate modern tastes.

In South America, yerba mate is made in a hollowed-out gourd and sipped with a sort of filtering straw called a bombilla. Pulso's mate 'gourd' is made of ceramic instead of calabash, and it's covered in a neoprene sleeve to protect hands against the heat.

Since mate gourds are often hard to come by (I got mine by chance through a waiter who'd just moved here from Ecuador), Pulso's mate vessel is a fantastic, stylish alternative to enjoy this traditional drink.
