Introducing the Percussion Plus Honestly Made Gourd maracas pair

The Percussion Plus Honestly Made pair of maracas are made from real gourd, dried and hand painted for a highly decorated finish. As they are made from real gourd, no two are ever quite the same so you can be sure your maracas are unique to you, with their own sound and shape.

Supplied as a pair, they are connected with string for easy storage. Made in Peru, all materials used are sustainably sourced and the instruments are crafted by independent makers. Each design is highly detailed and unique to the instrument.

This pair of gourd maracas is sourced using Fair trade principles. See below for more information about the Honestly Made range of musical instruments from Percussion Plus.

These items are musical instruments not toys and there may be small parts on or in some of them. Younger players should use them under supervision.


Made from real gourd

Gourds are the naturally occurring fruits of the Cucurbitaceae plant family and for thousands of years have had various domestic uses, including water vessels, art pieces, and musical instruments. To make these maracas, the gourds are grown and dried, then filled with the dried seeds, sealed, and hand finished with painted decoration.


Traditional maracas

Maracas are heard in many forms of Latin music and are also present in pop and classical music. Traditionally, in Latin America, maracas are made from a dried calabash or a gourd shell filled with seeds or dried beans, like this pair. These Percussion Plus maracas are great for any percussionist to create real Latin sounds.

Our sustainable packaging

A key principle of Honestly Made is sustainability, and we’ve modified our packaging of these items accordingly by adopting fully recyclable and biodegradable glassine paper bags.

Naturally, we don’t want to waste our pre-existing packaging material, meaning you might still receive some of these products in classic, non-glassine packaging. If so, rest assured that your order has contributed to our collective waste management mission.




Percussion Plus Honestly Made products are manufactured in independent family workshops that are too small to join Fair Trade groups or are located in countries that do not have such organisations. These suppliers and their subsidiaries all follow Fair trade principles which include:

  • Agreeing a fair price Use of recycled materials
  • Paying significant amounts upfront
  • Being loyal and reasonable in all dealings
  • Prioritising smaller suppliers over large factories
  • Manufacturing methods that do not damage the environment
