The Timorese have a distinctive and rich culture surrounding the giving and chewing of betel nut. These tobacco and betel nut containers are deliberately made of a different shape and construction to those which hold the lime powder for both cultural and practical reasons. It makes it easier to tell the difference in the dark of the hut or night.

      For more information about Betel nut and its place in Timorese society please go to Julies site www.timortreasures.com/julie or clik link under paypal sign on the left top of home page and look under Culture in Timor.
