A long-time Brazilian artisan friend of mine has changed his working method. For many years he made Tepi and Kuripe using a lot of resin and epoxy. Now he expresses his work in a more simplistic natural way. Letting the wood and its shape speak for itself while maintaining a high degree of precision. The connections between the different wooden parts are very solid. A common carpenter’s technique is used to realize this.

Tepi and Kuripe

Traditionally Rapé is administered through a pipe made out of bamboo or bone. The Tepi is a blowpipe that you can use to administer another person. When receiving Rapé the other blows it through both nostrils. In general, the shape of the Tepi is straight, curved or V-shaped. A different form is self-administration. For this, you use a Kuripe. The Kuripe has a V- shape and connects the mouth to the nostril. In this case, you blow the Rapé to yourself.
