This tagua necklace is fair trade and ethically handmade in Colombia, Muichic Natural Jewelry is a proud member of the Fair Trade Federation.
When ripe, tagua seeds are harvested and dried for 6 to 9 months. After losing all their moisture they become rock solid resembling ivory in color, texture and hardness, hence their nickname: “Vegetable Ivory”. At this point the hard seeds can be polished, dyed, cut and shaped into beautiful beads that become Muichic’s natural jewelry.
