Mixed Tagua Beads and Counters
Beautiful Natural Tagua Pieces - 250g Bags
What is Tagua? From the heart of the Amazon grows a special tree called the Tagua, or ivory palm. It produces an extraordinary fruit, the Tagua nut, which has been used for buttons, jewellery and carved objects for centuries.
The purchase of the tagua nut supports the employment of nearly 35000 indigenous people. The income received from the tagua crops is a strong incentive for them maintain the trees. The nut is harvested and left to dry for a period of 3 years. Once cut into manageable pieces it is shaped and polished and coloured with natural dyes.
Like our Tagua counters and whole nuts, these random selection of tagua pieces are fascinating! There are so many different colours and shapes and sizes and really random pieces it would be like looking in a treasure trove from children exploring them! They really are a fantastic one off ideal for loose parts and creative play!
These would be a great addition to add to the tagua sorting counters to show the children where they came from and also to use in loose parts and imaginative play!
These could also be used as calming stones and stimming stones for those who may need them due to their tactile feel.
For adults these would also look fantastic in a coconut bowl as a decorative piece in the home or at work - Run your fingers through the pieces and explore the shapes and colours! Or add to some jewellery!
