Made from the seed of palm trees native to the lush tropical country 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 the beads seen here. 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.
