I finally finished unpacked and photographing all of the incredible handmade, one of a kind, tagua nut jewelry. In case you didn’t see the last article about tagua nuts (aka palm ivory) check out this article. If you are looking for one of a kind gift idea that are all hand made, these are perfect.
Given trade restrictions in elephant ivory ivory palm nuts are often used as a substitute for elephant ivory today, and traded as vegetable ivory, palm ivory, corozo or tagua. When dried out, it can be carved just like elephant ivory. Vegetable ivory furthers important environmental and socioeconomic goals by stimulating the local economies and in South America, provides an alternative to cutting down rain forests for farming, and prevents elephants from being killed for the ivory in their tusks.
The kernels are typically simply picked up from the ground after the ripe fruit has detached from the tree and forest animals have taken care of the pericarp, or harvested when ripe and the pericarp manually removed.
At Scentsations we are striving to offer more socially conscious gifts for all occasions. These are all fair Trade and is a sustainable way for the Amazon Indians to earn a living.
