When we talk about tailor-made, we respect our commitments!

Our craftsman knows how to do everything , and do it well! We have several possible customizations . This list is not exhaustive, if you want another type of customization that is not mentioned below, do not hesitate to let us know.

These letters, numbers or shapes are handcrafted in gilded bronze and inlaid on the Alpaca ferrule (upper part of the calabash).

Patches and logos

Personalization on the side of the calabash is also possible. These are often logos or crests that are affixed to it.

The crests and logos are also made of gilded bronze and inlaid on the Alpaca ferrule (lower part of the calabash). This customization is only possible for an imperial calabash.

leather work

It is quite possible to customize the leather. You can choose the color of it but also to embed a shape , a logo or a crest of your choice!

Manufacturing delays

In order to achieve high quality work, our craftsman needs about 1 month to make a calabash in your image. It will then take between 1 and 2 months maximum to receive your little jewels at home!
