Print Story Card


Slices of tagua nut are dyed serene shades, then combined in this lovely necklace. Tagua adds value to the natural landscape, discouraging deforestation. Also known as “vegetable ivory” tagua is produced by a palm-like tree in South America. Tagua nut’s grain is close and very hard, resembling the finest ivory. The nuts fall to the ground when mature, thus harvesting does not damage the trees. Cultural tradition and forest preservation combine in the use of this renewable resource.
