Briar and Olive wood.
My homeland is rich with various materials related to pipe making. As with morta, we harvest Briar and olives wood by ourselves, process and prepare it for production on traditional way, drying at last three years. In the coastal part of Croatia, Primorje and Dalmatia, briar trees are very common. On this locations exist excellent conditions for the formation of burl, the spherical part of the root from which pipes are made. This requires rocky terrain and a very strong wind, which are common on the islands. Croatia has more than 1000 islands, (exactly 1246 ) and one of the most beautiful coasts.
With the coming to power of the communists, that form of business disappeared.
Today, a few of us enthusiasts harvest briar and process it. Unlike other areas of the Mediterranean, where briar has practically disappeared, exactly it is all used, because the tree needs 20-60 years to form a burl, in the Croatian coast the stocks of first-class briar are still very large.
In terms of quality, Adriatic briar is superior, naturally reddish in color, beautiful in texture and hardness.
