Organic Tagua Jewelry's mission is to promote the beautiful, eco-friendly, and 100% sustainable Tagua Ivory around the world. By doing so, they empower villagers in their founders' home of Sosote, Ecuador by providing reliable employment and a decent living wage. They have a very special and direct relationship with their artisans since one of the founders still lives in the village. The artisans are their friends and neighbors, and they are proud to promote their work. Through direct equitable trade, the artisans are able to eat better, keep their children in school, and invest in their futures, while keeping their traditions alive and vibrant. The production of our products keeps Sosote families, their local economy, and their beautiful natural environment strong today and for generations to come.
