This Ecuadorian business was named after a palm tree nut called Tagua, which grows in the Ecuadorian sub-tropics at 5.600 feet above sea level. This nut is the main raw material used by Taguarte in the creation of their beautiful jewelry due to its unique characteristics and incredible resemblance to elephant ivory. There is no environmental impact in the use of Tagua; it’s collected once it naturally falls to the ground and colored with natural dyes.
Passion for Tagua
Since then this natural material became her main source of inspiration. Her designs have traveled to many different countries in the world, which speaks of their high quality and style.
The making of organic jewelry
This way Taguarte honors the hard work of dozens of communities that look forward the preservation of their natural environment and their cultural heritage.
