It took centuries of development to turn the traditional hookah into the fruity, light smoking instrument that enjoys worldwide recognition and popularity today.
The history of the hookah took its origin in the northern regions of India. The Sanskrit word nārikela (नारीकेल), which is the basis for the Turkish name of the hookah nargile, translates as coconut and gives a clue to the first forms of production of the hookah: Thus, the bowl at that time consisted of the hard and waterproof shell of the coconut, the smoke column of a hollow bamboo stick and as a tube was probably used a straw or another, thinner bamboo stick.

The traditional hookah, as we know it today, eventually came to Arabia, the Ottoman Empire (present-day Turkey), and North Africa, particularly Tunisia and Egypt, via Persia between the 16th and 17th centuries. In Turkey, hookah smoking was introduced in 1603 by Sultan Ahmed I, who had a reputation for a pleasurable and epicurean lifestyle. From there, the hookah has evolved over the years to become a cultural asset of Arab countries. It symbolizes a balanced way of life, hospitality and conviviality.
