What is Tagua?
Tagua nuts, also known as vegetable ivory, are obtained from the elephant palm tree, a native of the Amazonian rainforest. When the nuts are dry, they resemble ivory in color, density, and character. In Ecuador, tagua seeds are skillfully carved into intricate designs and polished just like ivory.
Encouraging Sustainable Harvesting
Our Rustic Tagua Pipes are made from tagua nuts that are collected by local people without causing any damage to the trees. This type of sustainable harvesting can be done on a semi-annual basis for up to 40 years. By purchasing tagua products, consumers are encouraging good utilization of land and forest management.
