Most pipes today are made from briar wood cut from the root burl of the tree heath (Erica arborea), a plant growing in the rocky and sandy soils around the Mediterranean. It has a natural resistance to fire and also is able to absorb moisture- a by-product of combustion, making it a good vessel for holding fire.

Italy and France probably produce the most briar pipes. Denmark also produces many fine pipes.
