▲ The stem logo: the silver logo represents a bent pipe binded with the letter "K" (Kalabash).
The markings: The top of each letter in the "Kalabash" word have an arabic style. This refers to the architecture in the city of Palermo. Sicilian culture was strongly influenced by Moorish presence from the 9th to the 11th century.
Artisan: Guiseppe Schimmenti crafted pipes in Palermo (Sicily, IT) from the late 1970s to the mid-1980s (7 or 8 years). During this short period he crafted not more than 500 pipes, all by hand.
His production was marketed by famous places like "Noli" in Milan , "Fincato" in Rome, "Ricciardi" in Naples and a few other shops.
Workshop address: 416, Via Roma, Palermo.
