The Spirit of Sayri

“The spirit of Sayri relies on these three pillars:
Care, Tradition and Regeneration.”

Our Tobaccos

Additive-Free Tobaccos

They are blends of three foliar levels of the Virginia tobacco plant, farmed in the northwest region of Argentina. Our tobaccos, after the “peluquilla” type grinding, are conditioned using solely chlorine-free water steam, making all the necessary efforts for the tobaccos to reach the consumer with 15% humidity.

Organic Tobaccos

They are the result of our first big farming effort of 100% free from agrochemical products, carried out with Virginia tobacco plants, farmed in the northwest region of Argentina.  These tobaccos have a sweet and gentle presence in the mouth.

Stringed Tobaccos

They are produced 100% free of agrochemical products in a small farm located in the northwest region of Argentina, using Criollo tobacco plants. They have a strong flavor and are ideal for the conscious smoking act and the different medicinal preparations (fasting, snuff, ambil, etc.).

Recovering the Sacred Legate

The elderly tell that now is the time for humanity to recover their harmonious relationship with Mother Earth, the Pachamama.

Ancestral Practices

According to the vision of the indigenous communities, each plant has a Spirit and when using it, the person seeks to establish a connection with its energy. This is why the time devoted to smoking has been a ceremony since ancient days.

A pleasure that allows the smoker to connect with the sacred and timeless sides of the life experience.

Conscious Smoking

We recommend taking some time for the cigarette rolling, having a good intention in mind. Try to avoid getting the smoke into the lungs, just keep it a few seconds in your mouth for the sacred plant active ingredient to take effect.
The effect to achieve is: be here, now, and feel its spirit!

Our Tobaccos

They are natural strands without additives, developed for the smoker who wants to know what he or she is smoking and, for the same reason, we offer them this high quality product. We do not add to Sayri any of the common additives like aromas, preservers and humectants, nor tobacco residues or puffed tobaccos. Our tobaccos have been cut into thin and long strands, which make cigarette rolling a much easier task.

Natural Tips

In order to keep the humidity of your Sayri tobacco, you can use some moistened cotton, or potato, orange, tangerine, lemon or apple peels. Or you may use fresh mint leaves, incayuyo (Lippia integrifolia), peperina (Minthostachys verticillata) or rose petals, according to your flavor preference. Humectants are not smoked; they are only added to the tobacco bag for a period that should not exceed 24 hours.

Our Tobaccos and the Wiphala

– The Flag of the Andean-Amazonian Communities –

Our ORIGINAL
tobacco
is called K’illu,
which means yellow
in the Aymara language.

In the Wiphala, this color represents energy and strength, the moral principles of the Andean people, and the doctrine of the pacha-kama and the pacha-mama: which both define the duality and set the laws and the rules, and the collective practice of brotherhood and human solidarity.

Our CLARO
(LIGHT) tobacco
is called Jank’u,
which means white
in the Aymara language.

In the Wiphala, this color represents time and dialectics (jaya-pacha). It is the expression of development and continuous transformation of the qullana marka over the Andes, the development of science and technology, the art, and the intellectual and manual work that generates the reciprocity within the community structure.

Our AMASADO NATIVO
(NATIVE MIX) tobacco
is called Ch’uxña,
which means green
in the Aymara language.

In the Wiphala, this color represents the Andean economy and production; it is a symbol of the natural wealth —both on and below the surface of the Earth. It also represents the land and the territory, the agricultural and livestock production, the flora and fauna, and the hydrological and mineralogical fields.

Our AGROECOLÓGICO NATURAL
(NATURAL AGROECOLOGICAL) tobacco
is called Sajuna,
which means violet
in the Aymara language.

In the Wiphala, this color represents the Andean politics and ideology. It is the expression of the Andes community power, and the State instrument as a higher instance; all of which represents the power structure, the social, economic and cultural organizations, and the administration of the community and the country.

Our CORTE GRUESO
(COARSE CUT) tobacco
is called Willa,
which means red
in the Aymara language.

In the Wiphala, this color represents the Earth (aka-pacha); it is the Andean people expression, in the intellectual development and cosmic philosophy, and in the thinking and knowledge of the Inca elders.

Our AGROECOLÓGICO CURADO
(CURED AGROECOLOGICAL) tobacco
is called Arumi,
which means orange
in the Aymara language.

In the Wiphala, this color represents society and culture. It expresses the culture, and the preservation and procreation of the human species, considered as the most precious heritage of the nation. ARUMI is the health and the medicine, the training and the education, and the cultural practice of dynamic youth.

Our OSCURO
(DARK) tobacco
is called Larama,
which means blue
in the Aymara language.

In the Wiphala, this color represents the cosmos, the infinity: the stars and the natural effects perceived on the Earth, the astronomy and physics, the socioeconomic, political and cultural organization; it is the law of universal gravitation, and of the dimensions and natural phenomena.

Our AGROECOLÓGICO EN CUERDA
(STRINGED AGROECOLOGICAL)
tobacco is called Ch’iyara,
which means black
in the Aymara language.

This color strongly represents the dark Criollo tobacco, processed using an ancestral technique kept by one of the elderly men.
