Tagua Nut Animal - Just Trade

25.00

This pendant is skillfully hand carved from a tagua nut. A nut is selected that is as close to the desired finished shape as possible, which is then formed using a variety of sanding processes and polished to achieve a smooth surface. This ethical jewellery is handmade by Darwin in Sosote, Ecuador.

Tagua is a nut from a type of palm that grows in the South American jungle. Often known as vegetable ivory, it is a sustainable and environmentally sound alternative to animal ivory.
