The Leafy Sol Company started as a way to connect cultures, foster friendship, and promote health.
It all started when our founder, Nia, lived in Buenos Aires Argentina from 2014 to 2016. Her first day there, she had no idea what anybody was saying, but she felt a warmth and friendship immediately from the people.
"It doesn't matter to an Argentine if you are an acquaintance, friend, family member, or stranger, if you enter their home, they will immediately put a kettle on and start preparing a gourd of mate."
This culture of hospitality, connection, and friendship is what Nia lovingly calls, "MATE CULTURE."
The name "Leafy Sol" came from the fact that the sun is the gorgeous emblem on the Argentine flag. Sol is sun in spanish. But it is pronounced exactly like "soul". And leafy because...you know...mate is a plant...It just had a ring to it!
Other countries drink mate in their own methods and styles, but there is nothing like the traditional Argentine way. This is why we founded The Leafy Sol Company.
We simply believe mate is good for the sol!
