▸ What is special about the aljamal hookah?

Where do we start with this answer; many call the aljamal a hybrid hookah because on the one hand it has traditional technical values (diameter of the pipes, size of the smoking chamber, material brass) and on the other hand it is perfectly CNC machined. With the original traditional water pipes, one often misses the processing quality. The aljamal hookah is a pioneer, for example, in the removable inner tube, in the tapeless connection of the column to the bowl, or in the ground joint for traditional hookah hoses. Quite apart from these points, it is just particularly nice, but best convince you of it yourself.

The hose itself is made of goatskin, this leather is wrapped around a stainless-steel wire, the hand and connection part traditionally made of cardboard. These are covered with different fabrics and the mouthpiece is mouth-blown from borosilicate glass in Germany.

No! The aljamal leather hoses are not washable, the natural product leather would become cracked and break. The best way to take care of your aljamal hose is to blow it out after smoking and hang it up. This allows it to dry in peace.

Each cover fabric of aljamal goatskin hoses we individually stitched because each tube blank is also made manually, each blank is slightly different, so each cover must be adjusted.

Most are sold on request by mail or phone, so unfortunately few ends up in our store, so just get in touch, then you get the aljamal hose you want. It will then be manufactured at short notice for you.
