Tagua Deep Blue Collection - Just Trade

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.

Here at Postcards Home, we believe in fair employment and sustainable trade. It just makes sense. When people are paid a decent living wage and their services are valued, productivity goes up and communities flourish, we all win.   

We go to great lengths to ensure that the products we sell tell a soulful and sustainable story - one that focuses on people and quality, rather than profits and quantity, and one that is rooted in the places where each product is made.

Every year the fantastic folk at the Fairtrade Foundation run a two-week campaign over February and March to highlight the difference Fairtrade can make to lives and communities around the world. We're getting involved in Fairtrade Fortnight - join us!
