Residents of Equador gather Tagua in the rain forest. It is then used in the manufacturing of buttons, jewelry, and arts and crafts. Tagua is an environmentally friendly material that also provides jobs for people in the rain forest. These carvings were hand made, utlizing this amazing material for its many beautiful qualities.
