Each necklace is entirely eco-friendly
Made of Tagua nuts - vegetable ivory -from Ecuador, these pieces aid to stop Elephant hunting
One palm tree produces 20 pounds of vegetable ivory;
the same amount of ivory produced by a female elephant in a lifetime.
By using these necklaces, you support local harvesters in the North Coast & artisans from Otavalo- Ecuador
The Tagua palm trees are never cut off allowing the species to grow and develop fruits naturally
Tinted with long-lasting vegetable coloring, the Tagua nut is sliced, shaped an perforated
to produce different gem beads and other hand crafts.
