STORY
Also known as "vegetable ivory" tagua is produced by a palm-like tree that grows in tropical regions of South America. The nuts fall to the ground when they are mature, and thus harvesting does not damage the trees. After harvesting and drying the nuts are ready for carving. The grain is close and very hard, resembling the finest ivory. Artisans have been carving tagua nuts for more than 200 years.
