Water pipes have come a long way since they were invented in China in the 16th century, both in terms of development and distance. Now called bongs, they offer an alternative method of smoking, which is recognised as being healthier than normal cigarette smoking, since the smoke is filtered through water and ice, removing some toxins and some tar. The habit has arrived in Europe, and Shiva is in a position to satisfy the market demand with its wide range of bongs.
There are over 70 products in the range of glass bongs, with a very wide variety of beautiful designs, sizes and various functional differences. Many of the items are so elegantly created that they also have an ornamental quality and would not be inappropriate in the most stylish surroundings or in glassware collections. In terms of functionality, many of the products have features unique to this range, such as removable bowls, removable spiral downpipes, percolators and double percolators, ice shelves or twists in the down tube to accommodate ice cubes, all incorporated to enhance your smoking pleasure.
Some bongs in the range even have glass which changes colour. There are many novel features in these models which are described in detail on the website. Needless to say, the choice is so wide in terms of sizes, prices and functions that there is also a very big choice of accessories designed specifically to complement this particular range. There are some bongs in this range which are available in sturdy, elegant carrying cases which include a range of accessories and would make an ideal novelty present, and may possibly persuade smoking friends to give up cigarettes for a safer form of smoking.
All accessories, cleaning tools and cleaning products are available from the suppliers and can be seen on the website.
