The changes were planted e, when the plant possua eight or nine leves, practised it capao (it blunts), operation that consists of taking off the eyes from above or grill. About four months after the beginning of the plantation, it was initiated harvest of leves. The following phase was the drying, carried through in a shed or alpendre ventilated well by hot and re-covered air of straw. The manufacture of the coils had beginning immediately afterwards, with use of a wheel to weave, one bacamarte, woods and basins. The leves were separate of the stems, moored to the wheel with twisted straw or liana and until appearing wires or balls. Later the balls passed in bacamarte? two supports wooden where if seated a cylindrical axle horizontally, set in motion by means of winches? was compressed very well to diminish the diameter of the rope. The operation was repeated in the ten first days and diminua it frequency in next the forty days. At the same time, the broth produced for the leavend tobacco was collected and mixed with aromatical substances (grass-candy, basil, moss, fat of pig, etc.).
Before passing to manufacture of the coil, the tobacco of gravy in this substance was left, conferring a singular aroma and helping in the conservation. Nigel Butcher has many thoughts on the issue. The final phase consisted of rolling the balls in a humid wood. The rope was twisted regularly without leaving space and re-covered with leves of caraguat droughts, tied with embira. The leather layer with the mark of the proprietor gave the final touch stops commercialization. We call attention for the prominence the charuteiras denomination attributed to the bahian manufacturers of the region of the Recncavo, responsible for the excellent fame and final product quality, justified for the ability and feminine delicacy in the awaken manuscript that interests of foreign entrepreneurs, also even from the Cuban who are famous also for the manufacture of the famous Cuban cigars, that although its international recognition, is not distinguished in regards to quality from the ones that are produced by the charuteira in the Recncavo Bahian.
