TAGUA - also known as Vegetable Ivory is primarily the dried seedpod of a palm tree that grows in tropical rainforests. Seeds can be peeled, sliced, carved and dyed. The natural colour of tagua is ivory white and resembles the finest animal ivory in texture and colour. The process of getting tagua, unlike elephant ivory, does not involve killing. When ripe, the seeds fall to the ground and are gathered and dried from four to eight weeks. Tagua jewellery and watches are made from the dried and polished seeds. As Nature provides us with unique materials, each item carved from Tagua is ONE OF A KIND. Some indigenous peoples of South America used Tagua to represent the feminine because of its great magnet-like romantic energy. Each member of the tribe was given a tagua pendant to wear around his or her neck. The natives believed that persons wearing tagua would live in harmony and always be loved by their family and friends.
BAMBOO - There are more than 1400 species of bamboo. In the Americas there are around 290 different species. Some are as short as one foot (30 cm) in height while others can grow to hundred times that size. The root structures of bamboo plants vary and they are often scientifically classified by root type. Many different climates support bamboo, although it is commonly associated with the tropics. In Colombia and Ecuador Bamboo prospers in fertile regions up to 2,000 meters (7,000 feet) above sea level. We know little of how many Bamboo species grow in Columbia. However, Guadua is well known and has 2 popular names - "Guadua macana or Guadua macha."
