Our Tagua jewelry collection has been handcrafted by amazing artisans exclusively from Ecuador. Tagua is a sustainable nut found in the Tagua Palm tree that grows mainly in rain forest regions. Tagua is also known as "vegetable ivory". It has the same appearance, density, and feel of animal ivory. Vegetable dye is used to make these one of a kind pieces so vibrant in color. Due to the versatility of the nut, artisans create necklaces, earrings, bracelets and even rings. Each purchase secures above fair wages and brings life changing opportunities for the artisans and their communities. Due to the uniqueness of each piece, no two pieces are exactly the same.
