Handcrafted by female artisans in Colombia they are made from tagua nuts, an ecological alternative to ivory. The tagua nut comes from the Ivory-nut Palm Tree in areas throughout the Amazon rainforest. Once dried, the nut can be carved and is then colored with non-toxic dyes and hand polished. Each piece of tagua is individually carved and dyed, so while similar, no two pairs will be exactly alike.
Please note: Some pieces will have the blue on top whereas others will feature the green on top. Please make an order note if you have a preference.
