The tagua jewellery range is made with vegetable ivory, a natural seed from a palm tree that grows in tropical regions of South America. The tagua seed is cut into different shapes and dyed in a variety of natural colours, revealing the veins of the pure cellulose material giving each piece an individual and natural look. Most importantly, tagua is replacing the slaughter of mammal ivory in the textile and fashion industries as the only natural alternative to animal ivory.
