This colourful and fun statement making necklace is created using Tagua nuts, and will become your new favourite accessory.
This necklace is handmade by a women’s cooperative near Otavalo, Ecuador. The cooperative was formed to allow the women to stay close to home as they raise their children, rather than going out to distant towns to serve as maids. The cooperative also gives the women an opportunity to work creatively as they provide a sustainable income to their families.
Tagua nuts grow naturally and sustainable in the Amazon rainforest. This kind of sustainable jungle harvesting provides local people with a sustainable income and helps prevent clear cutting the Amazon for forestry and farming purposes.
Lengths vary and is adjustable in most cases.
CARE NOTE: As natural dyes are used in the creation of these products, prolonged exposure to direct sunlight may slightly fade the colour over time.
