Chilean Cactus Rainsticks

Our natural rainsticks are handcrafted in Chile and produce a mystical sound like rain trickling. After the Capado cactus plant dies and dries out, it is cleaned and hollowed out by native artisans of Chile. The spines are pushed into the hard wood body, and many very small pebbles are sealed inside. The unique sound produced by turning the stick from end to end is still used in traditional rain ceremonies throughout South America today.

Product Description

Our natural rain sticks are handcrafted in Chile and produce a mystical sound like rain trickling. After the plentiful Capado cactus plant lives about 6 decades it dies and dries out, and is then harvested, cleaned, and hollowed out by native artisans. The spines are pushed into the hard wood body, or small sticks are inserted, and many very small pebbles are sealed inside. The unique sound produced by turning the stick from end to end is mesmerizing to children and adults alike, and is still used in traditional rain ceremonies throughout South America today. Our imported rain sticks feature:

* sturdy construction will stand up to use in the classroom, home, or band over time

* Much clearer sound than plastic or poorly made imitation rain sticks

* Twine dyed in bright Chilean color combinations wrapped around one or both ends of rainstick

* We pay our artisans extra to have a special clear sealant applied, making our rain sticks smoother, water and stain resistance, and more durable

* SIZE OPTIONS: available in small 20″, 30″, or 40″
