These stunning disc earrings feature skilfully hand carved Tagua components beautifully complimented by hand cut and polished brass discs. This pair is the result of a truly international collaboration between artisans in fair trade workshops in Ecuador and Peru.
Tagua is a nut from a type of palm that grows in the South American jungle. Often known as vegetable ivory, it is a sustainable and environmentally sound alternative to animal ivory. Tagua is a natural, organic material and the undyed products may darken slightly over time, this is normal. If your Tagua jewellery is looking a bit dull it can be buffed up with a soft white cotton cloth.
Although Tagua is a fairly hard wearing material, please be aware that if you drop it onto or knock it against a hard surface it could chip. Never immerse your Tagua jewellery in water as this can cause it to crack. Brass is likely to tarnish over time. If you want to restore the original shine to your jewellery we recommend you clean it with Brasso and a soft cloth.
The best of fair trade!
