Mate burilado are calabash or gourd fruit decorated by hand with a technique called burilado using the carving instrument called buril [es] or burin. This Peruvian folk art form is found in the Mantaro Valley, as well as in the provinces of Lambayeque and Huanta. For more than 4,000 years, artisans have practiced the tradition of hand-carving dried gourds to document oral narratives. Commonly, the training process takes five years.

The oldest carved gourds date back 3,500 years and were found in the Huaca Prieta temple (Chicama Valley) on Peru’s north coast.
