This product is carved from a single tagua nut, a seed from a type of palm that grows in South American rainforests. Often known as vegetable ivory, tagua nuts are an environmentally sound alternative to animal ivory. The design is inspired by the intricate polished oak and lime wood carvings from the American Memorial Chapel in St Paul's Cathedral, which faithfully depicts indigenous American birds, fruits and flowers.
Made in Ecuador by Carlos and his friends who are part of nationwide group of World Fair Trade Organisation.
Produced and designed exclusively by Just Trade for St Paul's Cathedral
