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. Above all, it is a valuable resource for native people to the amazon. Who collect to use and trade with the fruits of natural forest bounty. We know Tagua as “vegetable ivory” for it’s similarities to animal ivory texture, colour, and ageing processes.
