Tagua, also known as vegetable ivory, is a seed from a palm tree that grows in tropical regions of South America. When ripe the nuts fall to the ground and are gathered and dried naturally for a period of up to 2-4 months after which they become extremely hard (ivory like). The tagua seed is cut into different shapes and dyed in a variety of natural colours, revealing the veins of the pure cellulose material giving each piece an individual and natural look. Most importantly, tagua is replacing the slaughter of mammal ivory in the textile and fashion industries.
