TAGUA NUT JEWELRY

Tagua nuts are the seeds from the fruits of the Phytelephas Aequatorialis palm tree, meaning literally: elephant plant from the equatorial region of the Amazon rain forest.  It is the new “Green Ivory” Eco-Fashion, a biodegradeable, renewable and sustainable resource.  Their TAGUA custom products are handmade from sustainably harvested TAGUA nuts- collected after they fall to the ground, so the palm trees are not harmed.

AGAVE Earrings

100% solar powered, biodegradable, renewable and sustainable plants that grow at 4,000 feet in the tropical mountainous regions in Colombia. When mature, the leaves are cut at the base of the plant, without taking down the plant. They are cut, separated from the fiber, washed combed, air and sun dried, then water based dyed and transformed into items like rope, hats, jewelry ….. and tequila!
