Tagua Nut Gifts
Tagua nuts are the seeds of the tagua palm tree, which grows under the rainforest canopy in Ecuador. Tagua is known as "vegetable ivory" and has many of the same qualities as elephant ivory. Before the advent of plastics, buttons, dice and chess pieces were made from tagua nuts. Today it is mostly used for jewelry.
Newly developed, we are open to adding more images. We can also do custom work, please call us about that: 800-828-3870.
We hope this line will be well received. It's a good feeling to carry something that is environmentally sustainable. When Ecuadorian families can make a living by harvesting tagua nuts, they will not need to clear the rainforest for agriculture.
