The silicone smoking accessory has an unusual and fairly unknown beginning. It may seem like an obvious material to create smoking accessories out of now, but silicone water pipes and hand pipes have only just gained popularity in recent years. Discovered somewhat by accident, EYCE brothers Charlies and Bruce Hoch were looking to create a water pipe made completely of ice. They used silicone molds to create the ice hand pipes and water pipes, and in doing so, realized the functionality of the silicone material.
Silicone is easy to clean, heat resistant, and virtually indestructible. Silicone is used in countless other applications such as medical equipment, cooking supplies, and more. Silicone is easily colored, making it an easy material to create unique and intricate colored designs, unlike the more difficult to use glass.
For those who travel, hate cleaning their pipes, or simply want something different, silicone is the answer. Gone are the days of worrying about breaking your glass water pipe, silicone can bend and drop from tall heights without shattering and jam packed into suitcases without fear of crushing. Cleaning could not be any easier, you can throw the dab rig in the freezer and the reclaim will come right off. For the flower pieces, warm water and soap will take off the grime quick and easy. Plus – there’s no fear of dropping your soapy piece on the bathroom floor, something we’ve all done before.
The countless applications, relatively cheap material costs, and uniqueness of silicone finally found their way into the smoking community. It was time for this functional material to be brought into the world of cannabis.
EYCE, founded in 2013, is a silicone-focused brand that creates futuristic and functional smoking accessories. Charlies and Bruce Hoch wanted to create a mold that could freeze functional water pipes made of ice. From the silicone molds, EYCE was born. EYCE is family owned and operated in Colorado Springs, Colorado. EYCE products are made from silicone and contain a number of unique features such as hidden stash boxes, poker holders, and magnetic lighter rings. EYCE focuses on travel friendly and durable pieces.
