Le Nuvole

Maurizio Tombari created the "Le Nuvole" line back in 1996 when he opened his workshop in Pesaro, after many year of experience working for Mastro de Paja and Ser Jacopo.

Since the beginning his wife Stefania contributed in the developing of Maurizio's own project, designing pipes shapes with a fresh and uncontaminated point of view which was a great help in order to create the peculiar "Le Nuvole" pipe line.

Maurizio only uses Italian briar. He personally selects Tuscany and Calabrian best briar. It is seasoned in his workshop for a few years before its use. "Le Nuvole" pipes mount high quality Germany Ebonite or Cumberland, completely hand cut from the rod.
