About Tagua

All of our products are handcrafted from a palm tree nut native to the lush tropical rainforests of Ecuador. Also referred to as the Ecuadorean Ivory Palm, the Tagua tree produces several bushels of seed pods a year with up to 100 Tagua nuts per pod. These nuts are then harvested, dried, and crafted into a wide range of products from vibrant modern jewelry, ornate figurines, to everyday items like shirt buttons. Also known as Vegetable Ivory, Tagua has the same appearance, density, and feel of animal ivory without doing any harm to any animals or the rainforests where it is gathered.

Go Green, Go Handmade

About Our Jewelry

All of our Organic Tagua Jewelry is handmade and dyed using high-grade certified organic vegetable dyes imported from Italy. Our collections offer a wide range of bracelets, rings, earrings, necklaces, figurines, and key chains. Our products are Proposition 65 tested and certified. Due to the scarcity and uniqueness of each piece, no two pieces are exactly the same. Additionally, the colors and/or color combinations available may also vary.

Not a charity, an empowering community transformation

Our Commitment to Fair Trade Practices:

Organic Tagua Jewelry's mission is to promote the beautiful, eco-friendly, and 100% sustainable Tagua Ivory around the world. By doing so, we empower artisans in our founders' hometown in Ecuador by providing reliable employment and a decent living wage. We have a very special and direct relationship with our artisans since one of our founders still lives in the village. Our artisans are our friends and neighbors, and we are proud to promote their work. Through direct equitable trade, our artisans are able to eat better, keep their children in school, and invest in their futures, while keeping their traditions alive and vibrant. The production of our products keeps these families, their local economy, and their beautiful natural environment strong today and for generations to come.

Protecting the Rainforest and Endangered Species

Our Commitment to the Environment:

Our products aid with the preservation of the Rainforest and its wildlife, since the tagua nut provides shelter and nourishment to forest animals like agoutis and squirrels. The left over materials and by-products of the tagua nut also help feed the livestock in the village. Additionally, the promotion and sale of tagua helps with the preservation of various mammals like elephants, whales, and walruses that have been slaughtered to near extinction for their ivory.
