Description

Classic tagua pipe

Tagua nuts are obtained from Phytelephas equatorials (elephant palm), an Amazonian palm tree. When they are dry, the hard, white tagua seeds look like ivory. As the character, density and color of the seeds resemble that of ivory, the palm is referred to as elephant palm. In Ecuador, tagua seeds are made use of to skillfully carve designs. These seeds can be polished just as ivory is polished.

Sustainable

Local people collect the pods without causing any damage to the trees. This type of sustainable harvesting may be done on a semi-annual basis for as many as 40 years. Tagua is a cash crop and the person engaged in the collection of tagua seeds earns more per acre than what he or she can earn if the same land is used for other farming purposes. When consumers purchase tagua, they are actually encouraging good utilization of land and forest management.
