Environmentally friendly jewelry that doesn't cost the earth! Tagua jewellery by Treats are designed and handcrafted in Vancouver, Canada, using fair-trade tagua beads sustainably harvested and handcrafted by artisans in Ecuador.
Tagua nuts, sometimes called vegetable ivory due to their hard, polished sheen and creamy warm colour, can take up to a year to ripen on the tagua palm. After being sustainably harvested by local rainforest communities the nuts are dried, carved, dyed and polished into beads in a dizzying variety of shapes and colours.
All Treats Designs handmade tagua jewelry is natural and one of a kind, and yours may have slight colour and texture variations from the pictured piece.
