All Tagua Jewelry is handmade and dyed using high-grade certified organic vegetable dyes imported from Italy. All products are handcrafted from a palm tree nut native to the lush tropical rain forests of Ecuador.
Also, referred to as the Ecuadorean Ivory Palm, the Tagua tree produces several bushels of seed pods a year with up to 100 Tagua nuts per pod. These nuts are then harvested, dried, and crafted into a wide range of products from vibrant modern jewelry, ornate figurines, to everyday items like shirt buttons.
Also, known as Vegetable Ivory, Tagua has the same appearance, density, and feel of animal ivory without doing any harm to any animals or the rain forests where it is gathered.
