Meerschaum pipes

Meerschaum consists of the mineral sepiolite and is sometimes found floating on the black sea — which is why it is called meerschaum, that is the German word for sea foam. The smoke from a meerschaum pipe is described as dry, cool and flavourful, and is therefore cherished as one of the greatest materials for pipe making. Arne Urup Meerschaum pipes will, because of their materialistic origin, change colour when used and in the aging process. This makes the pipes even more characteristic and unique. For a collector, Arne Urup Meerschaum pipes are a must have, both as brand-new pipes and as estate pipes, where the history and lineage of the pipe becomes apparent in the material itself.
