EcoBeads: Saving the Planet, One Bead at a Time


Within the shadows of tropical rainforest canopies, is a palm tree producing tagua seeds. This palm grows up to 27 feet, usually in the swampy parts of the forest, most often in groups.
Up to fifteen spikes a year form on the palm. Each spike produces a hard shell fruit with protrusions. The fruit contains about thirty seeds/nuts.
After drying three to six months, the seed hardens. At this stage, it can be used to make a variety of objects, beads and buttons.
Over the last few decades, tagua has become an important natural material for its beauty, and because the palm grows with less sun, under the rainforest canopy leaving the canopy untouched. Tagua helps improve the standard of living in the impoverished rural areas where the seeds are harvested.
Our beads are made in workshops where workers receive a fair wage for their work. The workshops are clean and some provide meals for workers and child care.
We hope you enjoy making beautiful jewelry from our eco-friendly beads.

Additional policies and FAQs
Since tagua beads are organic, they can become damaged with repeated exposure to water, heat, sun and changes in humidity. Always keep tagua dry and do not store in a closed container or plastic bag. If exposed to water, let beads dry thoroughly. Tagua exposed to heat, sun and or drastic temperature changes may create cracks or color changes. Constant exposure to the sun may also cause damage.
