Tagua Pices 500g
Beautiful Natural Tagua Pieces
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.
This bag of 500g Tagua pieces are different shape, slices and colours. Mainly slices of naturally dyed nut.
These pieces would be ideal for loose parts for older children to create pictures and mosaics and for comparing sizes, shapes and colours.
