The fundamental element of a pipe is the briar, a protuberance that grows between the roots and the shafts of the Heather Arborea, a bush that is found exclusively in the Mediterranean's basin and in mountainous areas exposed to marine's air.

In the sawmill, the block of briar (ciocco) is cut by expert hands of the miller (segantino) according to its quality and characteristics.
After being cut, the briar is boiled in water for two hours then left to dry and to mature for a period of two to three years.
Afterwards, the artisan selects with care, the best peces for his pipes.
