These ornaments are delicately carved from tagua nuts, a type of palm nut that is sustainably harvested from the South American rainforest. The nuts are collected, polished, sliced, and then carved using tiny dremels.

ProPueblo of Ecuador creates work opportunities and encourages growth and independent livelihoods for local artisans in their home villages. Diminishing employment opportunities have also left fewer funds for basic education and adequate healthcare. The escalating number of poor single mothers and widows, combined with the increase of an already high incidence of male alcoholism, prompted ProPueblo to start working to create sustainable economic opportunities. Artisans are offered support in developing new designs with their traditional skills and are offered business expertise in logistics and finances.
