Tagua is a nut that grows in South American rainforests. Tagua nuts fall to the ground, are carved and dyed, and harden to the consistency of “vegetable ivory”, as tagua is called. The tagua is strong and light, making it a perfect choice from Mujeres Jireh for earrings and necklaces. Created in partnership between SEED Livelihood and Mujeres Jireh. Mujeres Jireh is Spanish for “women for whom God provides”. They are a network of women in churches throughout Peru, making handicrafts like earrings, alpaca scarves, and hand-dyed woven purses.
