Calabashes and gourds are natural, waterproof containers that grow in many different sizes and shapes, and have been used extensively throughout the Americas. Traditional Colombian poporos (containers for lime powder for coca-chewing) are often made of calabashes (bottle gourds). These were greatly valued, and were often replicated in ceramic and tumbaga (gold-copper alloy).
