The meanwhile famous tagua palm tree nuts from South America's rain forest inspired this extravagant and charming line of jewelry. The latest complement to La Tagua’s accessories is the world’s first organic watch.
Like ivory, tagua nuts are beautifully polished and as hard as any animal based ivory or bone. They are also referred to as "vegetable ivory". Tagua nuts can have a natural wood grain texture which is strikingly highlighted when correctly color dyed.
La Tagua introduces earth and animal friendly accessories, which are in natural harmony with our environment. La Tagua jewelry is considered an ecologically safe, supportive and friendly product. Only the naturally fallen tagua nuts are used – no harm to the palm trees! The production supports an Amazon based resource material, where an estimated 25 percent of our planet's oxygen and 80 percent of modern medicine is generated. La Tagua offers safer alternatives to petroleum based plastic products (when oil wells are drilled as deep as six miles into the Earth to search for petroleum).
La Tagua jewelry is also sold at Japan’s famous department stores Isetan and Mitsoukoshi – known as the Tiffany of Tokyo. Sales in Japan have been so successful that La Tagua is positioned next door to Hermes.
