DETAILS

+ Made in Ecuador  
+ Material: Tagua seed and waxed thread.
+ About the Tagua nut: The tagua nut is one of the most eco-friendly materials obtained from the Coast of Ecuador. After being harvested from the ground, the tagua nut passes through a process of drying, hardening, and carving. Its natural color and texture so closely resemble ivory that it is called “vegetable ivory”. Tagua beads are dyed in an array of beautiful colors, before becoming stunning fashion pieces.
