Tagua Rainbow Bracelet, Ecuador

This colorful tagua bracelet is festive and fun to wear!   Handcrafted in a fair trade cooperative in Ecuador it consists of 3 elastic strands of multicolored tagua beads of varying sizes and shapes, joined together by a rectangular shaped bead.  

The tagua nut comes from the Amazon rainforest and is considered an ecological alternative to ivory.  Once dried, the nut is then carved, colored with non-toxic dyes and hand polished.  Tagua is being used throughout the Amazon for jewelry to help prevent poaching of elephants for their ivory.

One size fits most (elastic).
