LA TAGUA

Tagua (pronounced TAG-WAH) is a seed or a nut from a
palm-like tree that grows in the tropical rainforests of
Ecuador, Colombia, and Panama. Also known as the
“vegetable ivory” because of its rich ivory color and shiny
texture, Tagua discourages the harming of elephants for
Ivory. The Tagua seeds are harvested after the seed has
already dropped to the forest floor, allowing the plant to 
continue to reproduce undisturbed and helping to preserve
natura rainforest land while also supporting a natural and
economic way of life for many people. Once the Tagua
seeds are collected, they are dried, sliced, polished and
then dyed. 

At each point is a quality check to look for cracks and 
inconsistencies in polish and dye. La Tagueria uses a
non-toxic dye that does not fade or bleed. The whole
process, from start to end, takes about 3 days for each
Tagua seed to complete.
