Tagua Deep Blue Collection - Just Trade

Image Source: Postcards Home
The necklaces and earrings in our stunning Deep Blue jewellery collection designed by Just Trade are handmade in Ecuador from a magical material called Tagua (”tah-gwa”).  
If you haven't heard of Tagua before, it is the nut from a type of palm that grows in the tropical South American rainforest. Often known as 'vegetable ivory' or 'Corozo', Tagua is a sustainable and completely environmentally friendly alternative to evil animal ivory, but with many of the same material characteristics. It is less brittle than bone, and has these amazing natural whorls of colour that make it ideal for jewellery making.
