The peoples Azteques, Mayas and Olmèques in Mesoameric, made balls in Rubber To play a Ritual ball game, known as Ulama in Nahuatl. This rubber was taken from the latex of Castilla Elastica, a tree from the family of Moraceae native in the Mesoamican region and not of the Hévéa (Hevea Brasiliensis), originally fromAmazonia. To increase elasticity, we mixed the sap of Castilla Elastica with the SUC of the white iPomée allowing a sort of vulcanization before the letter.
