The slices have a nice shine and polish, NO varnish or lacquer for shine. They are hand cut and hand polished ONLY.

Tagua Nuts – also known as Vegetable Ivory is a seeds that comes from Phytelephas Macrocarpa palm tree that grows in the tropical rainforest of South America. The nuts grow in large spike clusters, reminding a honey cone with many nuts inside. They are pure cellulose and before the nuts mature, they are soft and can be eaten – they taste just like a fresh coconut. Many nuts present a crack in the center and the density is very close to the density of animal ivory. Tagua is replacing the slaughter of mammal ivory (elephants and other) in the textile and fashion industries. In one year, one tagua palm produces as much ivory as an average female African elephant. No HARM is done to the nature and hundreds of families are employed by the Tagua nut production market.

TAGUA is a great product and is considered Vegetable Ivory. Tagua has density similar to the density of animal ivory, BUT is 100% renewable and generates hundreds of jobs to the locals in South America.

All pieces are handmade by our artisans in South America.

[*] Please note that pieces will vary due to the natural shape and size of tagua nuts. All pieces are handmade.
