Metal cup wrapped in leather and finished with a hand stitch
Our take: this is a guampa, the cup that is used to drink yerba mate. It holds loose tea leaves and you drink it by pouring water in and sipping with a filtered metal straw. It can also be used to drink other beverages. Alternatively, it makes a stylish pen holder in the office.
Looks great in the kitchen or on a bar cart
Drink safe - leather can get wet

Conditioning: To improve quality, tone and feel of the leather, condition twice a year or as needed by applying Vasoline to a microfiber glove or cloth and massaging it evenly onto the leather. Bati's vegetable-tanned leather absorbs moisture and natural oils and takes on a darker, richer tone afterwards.*Conditioning is a great way to blend together the various marks and imperfections of the leather and bring out the natural patina.
Liquids:Bati leather can get wet! Our leather is treated with organic ingredients that make it water resistant. Before making the goods, we actually wet the hide with a sponge and stretch the leather out to make it softer. So don't worry if the leather gets wet, just let it dry out.*Condition the leather from time to time after exposure to water.
Spills & Stains:Bati leather is durable and tough to stain. Stains appear more prominently on lighter leather colors. Treat stains promptly with a damp cloth and wipe clean. If treated quickly, most spills will not leave a stain. If marks or stains do persist, soak a sponge in lemon juice and rub the affected area with force.*After cleaning, you can condition the stain and the surrounding area to even out the tone.
Washing: Hand wash clean and try not to wet the leather. For tough areas, soak with soapy water and let sit. Rinse clean and let dry.
