Our tagua jewelry is handmade from high-quality, sustainably-produced, Fair Trade tagua. Tagua is considered the new eco-friendly, vegetable ivory and is known for its strength, color, beauty and resilient qualities.
Several tropical American palms produce vegetable ivory, but one of the most important is Phytelephas Aequatorialis, also known as the Ecuadorean Ivory Palm. This palm tree is the main source of Ecuadorean tagua, a botanical alternative to ivory. The name literally means “elephant plant” and the palm grows in the Equatorial Amazon Rain Forest in the Napo Valley region between Colombia and Ecuador.
