These well designed pocket pipes are carefully crafted by Ukrainian artists Faika Pipes.
Faika – dialect word that is typical for population of the Carpathian Mountains which means “pipe”. Made from Carpathian smoked clay, the designs hark back to ancient magic and mysterious rituals.
This line of pipes was created as a limited run of 200 featuring 4 different designs. Everything from the packaging of these pipes with the custom wax stamps to the organic textures of the pipes is quietly beautiful. Each element comes together to create a fully immersive experience.
“Smoke in the beliefs of many cultures is traditionally perceived as something, by nature, close to the disembodied spiritual beings,” explains the pipe’s creators.
“Accordingly, it was common thing that offerings and sacrifices in the state of smoke could be consumed by spiritual essence. Smoking, as a means of communication with the spirits can be seen in rituals of smoking and fumigation in archaic cultures.”
“Pipe often belonged to objects that possessed great power and accompanied its owner lifelong and even were put into their coffin.”
