    THE “VALDES” NAME: Inspired by the breathtaking Valdes Peninsula in Patagonia, Argentina, our mate gourd pays homage to this pristine nature reserve. Just as the peninsula teems with vibrant marine life, our Valdes gourd captures its essence through its design and color. Experience the beauty of Valdes with every sip.

    MADE IN ARGENTINA: Each mate gourd is meticulously crafted in Argentina, showcasing unparalleled quality and durability. With carefully stitched leather, this gourd is built to withstand the test of time, providing years of enjoyment.

    Elevate your mate experience with the Yerba Crew Valdes Imperial Mate Set – where craftsmanship, tradition, and nature converge to create a truly exceptional ritual.


    THE VALDES GOURD- The gourd is about 4 in wide and 4 ½ in high. It weighs in at around 12.8 oz and has a volume of around 5 oz. The exterior is wrapped in Argentine leather with a torpedo style base. The interior is completely stainless steel removing the need to cure or to carefully maintain the gourd. The ornate portion of the rim is Alpaca silver and the top rim is stainless steel.

    THE YERBA CREW SILVER BOMBILLA - Made from stainless steel and 6.1 in (155mm) in length working perfectly with the size of the Yerba Crew gourd.

    THE YERBA CREW BOMBILLA CLEANER - Made from stainless steel and 7 in (178mm) in length with nylon bristles can be used to clean deep inside your bombilla when you do your periodic bombilla cleaning.


    WILL MY GOURD LOOK EXACTLY LIKE THE PICTURE? - Quick answer is “mostly”. We aim to keep the gourds about 85% consistent with the design but the handmade nature of the production allows for color and shape variations. Each gourd is unique and one of a kind.

    Care Guide

    HOW DO I CURE THE GOURD? - No need to cure it! Because the interior is stainless steel, just give it a quick rinse before your first use and you're good to go.

    HOW DO I MAINTAIN THE GOURD? - To maintain the leather exterior of your mate gourd, gently wipe it with a soft, damp cloth after each use to remove any residue. Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight or excessive moisture to preserve its quality and appearance over time. The interior can just be rinsed with water after each use.
