Wondering What is a Tagua Nut?
Tagua Nuts also referred to as Tagua Seeds are harvested from the towering Phytelephas palm tree. The tree’s name translates to elephant plant, which is fitting, since jewelry made from it is compared to the beauty of ivory. Deep in the Amazon Rainforest lies a nut that when carved takes on the appearance of ivory. When the nut is ripe, it falls to the earth making collection safe. It absorbs dye like a dream and is commonly used to make jewelry and art. This nut is called Tagua, or vegetable ivory, and prompts the question- why is anybody still using ivory?
Tagua (pronounced TAG-WAH) grows on a tree that looks like a palm tree. The nuts are found inside spiny pods ("mocochas" in Spanish) on the tree, each pod can contain between 40 and 80 nuts. Harvesting the nuts does not disturb the tree’s reproduction, making Tagua an ecologically sound resource as well.
Much of our sleek, modern Tagua Jewelry comes from a workshop in Colombia owned by a third generation Tagua harvesting and artisan family of craftsman and women, who have over 30 years of experience with Tagua and were awarded the title of best small exporter in all of Colombia in 2013. They ensure employees are paid fairly and have health benefits and job security. Employees are encouraged to voice their opinions and safety precautions are taken around the machinery, which is housed in the large workshop with lots of natural light. Although we are on another continent, we try to choose partners who care about the conditions we all value for healthy living, lifestyle, and time with family.
What is a Sola Wood Flower?
Sola Wood Flowers are made of shola from the Shola plant- which is a fast-growing and sustainable wood from India. The tapioca root is a renewable resource and a natural material, so they are eco-friendly and renewable.
Sola (or ‘shola’) wood flowers are made from a plant called Aeschynomene aspera (rolls off the tongue, right? No wonder they’re simply called ‘sola’!). It’s a plant that grows wild in marsh areas. Because it grows quickly, it is a renewable resource and one of the lightest known woods. The plant has a layer of bark that covers the internal, cork-like center of the plant (called the ‘cream’). In most flowers, the bark is stripped and the center is made into thin sheets. It is these sheets that are hand-cut to make sola wood flowers.
Sometimes, the bark is left on before the creation of sheets, creating a unique two-tone effect on the flower. These are called ‘bark’ or ‘skin flowers’.Native to regions such as India, and Thailand mostly, it is considered one of the lightest woods in the world.
