If you spend your lunch hour or weekend walking from one shop to another just trying to find that perfect piece of jewellery which will complete your outfit, you can be forgiven for having a feeling of déjà-vu because it would seem that much of the High Street is selling similar jewellery designs. Whilst fashionable jewellery is now far more accessible and less expensive in these highly competitive retail times. If you would like fashionable jewellery that will last, look no further than Taguabella.
Taguabella jewellery is fair-trade, which means the people that hand craft this jewellery are paid a fair wage. The word ‘tagua’ in Taguabella is the clue to how this jewellery is made. This fair trade jewellery is made from the ‘tagua’ nut of the Genus Phytelephas tree (known as the ivory-nut palm) indigenous to South American countries. The palm trees are organically and sustainably grown making them eco-friendly. The nut is dried, and then sliced into beads from which beautiful individual pieces of jewellery can be handcrafted. The shape of the nut dictates the shaped of the bead, so no two pieces of jewellery are exactly the same.
Not only is Taguabella jewellery unique it also provides a boost the local economy in Colombia and is an alternative to cutting down the rainforests or killing elephants for their ivory.
Taguabella is available in a range of bright colours and more subtle earthy colours. From the fuschia Taguabella
