Finely Handcrafted Tagua Nut Squirrel Ornament Hand Carved in Ecuador - Medium Size -
High quality workmanship, unique design, and attention to detail, makes this tagua carving a unique reproduction. For nature lovers, these ornaments combine natural vegetable ivory and fine craftsmanship to create a realistic collectible. Our ornaments are mostly used as decorative objects or as favors for festivities. The loop to attach the ornament string is made of fishing filament so that it is barely visible. Tagua collectibles are direct result of our commitment to nature and the urgent need to create income opportunities for impoverished local community members. Teaching people how to craft tagua and helping them sell their handmade treasures gives them an income alternative that reduces pressure on the unique and endangered habitat of the surrounding dry tropical forests.
