An ideal alternative to elephant ivory, tagua (tä'gwä) nuts are also known as "vegetable ivory." Their use promotes industry in rain forest countries and prevents valuable rain forest resources from being destroyed. These tagua nut beads feature a rich red color with heavy to no matrix. Dyes on the tagua nuts penetrate just the first layer. As beads are a natural material, size, color and shape may vary. Testing for colorfastness is recommended.
