Simple Kuripe (Matses)
Handmade Simple Matses Kuripe (self-applicator)
Simple yet elegant, one piece applicators. Handmade and sourced direct from the Matses tribe in Peru. Fairly traded and beautifully made.
These are a perfect applicator for all expect those small or normal sized heads (As I am a giant of a person with a big head, the long side is a little short so would advise to select a different type.)
Size: Longest side 9cm, shortest 8cm
Traditionally, rapé is administered through either the Tepi or Kuripe. The Kuripe is a for self-administration and the Tepi is used when blowing the snuff for another person. The V-shaped applicator or Kuripe, connects the nostril to the mouth. The Tepi is a long blow pipe that connects the nostril of the receiver with the mouth of the blower, who then blows the rapé into the nose of the receiver.
