Tagua Shop

taguaTagua, also called ivory nut or ivory vegetable for its resemblance to this, is the seed of various kinds of palms that grow in moist forests in Panama, Colombia, Ecuador and Brazil. They can reach a height of up to 8 meters. In 1880, four thousand tons of tagua were exported, all this demand was for the manufacture of buttons, pipes and other utensils. This export began its decline when plastic began to be used instead. The hardness of the tagua and its resemblance to ivory has been well known for many years as vegetable ivory. The Tagua is a palm whose fruits can make a wealth of hand-carved crafts. We offer you a multitude of products made by hand, so you can get a beautiful memory of the tourist experience.
