The Tagua Nut or Vegetable Ivory:
The Tagua nut is the endosperm of a seed that come from the palm species Phytelephas aequatorialis. The palm tree that produces the Tagua Nut grows naturally in the rain forests of South America. So it is a sustainable and renewable resource. We know Tagua as “vegetable ivory” for it’s similarities to animal ivory texture, colour, and ageing processes.
Care of your Tagua Jewellery
Avoid applying perfume onto Tagua as this could cause colour to fade.
Our Tagua products are made from seeds/nuts found within the pods of the Ivory Nut Palm. Tagua is the “ivory of the rainforest”. Or “vegetable ivory” due to its exceptional carvability. An since it serves as a viable alternative to animal ivory, thus protecting those animals. So Tagua is the only natural and 100% sustainable alternative for animal ivory.
Its use is protecting species in danger and the world’s precious forests. Certainly Tagua products help preserve tropical rainforests by providing a sustainable income for forest gathers.
