Kuripe Traditional Handmade Rapé Snuff Applicator
Kuripe’s are handmade by the Amazon and made with love and intention. Used to administer herbal snuffs and powders such as Rapé and Tobacco snuffs.
With the rising popularity and widespread use of powder tobacco products this once relatively unheard of niche has given birth to a growing demand for Rapéh and its collectable paraphernalia.
Kuripe tobacco pipes are most commonly used for the self-administration of Rapéh tobacco – a type of dry shamanic snuff powder with calming and psychotropic properties. From ceremonial Rapéh to recreational usage, Kuripe pipes are convenient, pocket-sized self-applicator pipes often hand-made from wood or bone.
A Kuripe is a small handheld powder tobacco pipe occasionally attached to a string and worn around the neck. Designed to make the Rapé application as clean and mess-free as possible, the tool originated from South American native tribes, giving birth to a unique and decorative handcrafted style, highly desired by a growing western market.
Rapé (pronounced ra-pay or hah-pay), also frequently known as Hape’ or Rape’, is a type of South American tobacco snuff used in both shamanic and alternative medicine ceremonies. Rapé enthusiasts often prefer the Kuripe tobacco pipe (over a Tepi pipe), which allows the user to conveniently self administer without the aid of an assistant to blow the powder tobacco – this method is typically done using a Tepi pipe, customary in Rapé and healing ceremonies.
