Huni Kuin Imburana
The name Imburana comes from Tupi (Guarani) language. Looking at the origin of the word; [ĩˈbu] comes from indigenous phrase which means tree that gives drink and [ra-na] can be translated as false. This sacred snuff is very popular and well regarded among Huni Kuin tribes for its strength. It is ceremonially prepared from ashes of Imburana fruits and Mapacho.
We also pack our Rapé into unbreakable glass. We choose dark blue glass to keep Rapé fresh for as long as possible.
PS: We like to recycle our bottles and send them back into circulation.
