Handcrafted Tagua Jewelry made by indigenous artisans from Panama. Fair Trade & Eco-Friendly
HANDMADE JEWELRY BY INDIGENOUS ARTISANS: TraderBrock’s Tagua Jewelry is handmade by indigenous Embera and Wounaan artisans in Panama. We offer a wide range of Necklaces, Earrings, Bracelets, Rings, Key Chains, and Figurines. Because of its unique handcrafted nature, no two pieces of our eco-friendly fair-trade jewelry are the same.
ECO-FRIENDLY & SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS: TraderBrock’s Tagua Jewelry is handcrafted from the Tagua Nut, a seed of certain palm trees which grow from Panama, Ecuador, Bolivia, Colombia, Brazil, Peru. The natural dyes used include Trumpet Vine, Safran, Lianas Vine, Mud, and Cocobolo Wood. By choosing TraderBrock Tagua Jewelry, you are helping fight the illegal Ivory trade and protecting endangered species. Tagua nuts are non-toxic, eco-friendly, and renewable. The Tagua nuts are harvested by hand through fair trade labor ensuring the trees are not harmed. Therefore, protecting and conserving the rainforest.
STYLISH TRADITIONAL DESIGN: TraderBrock’s Jewelry designs usually portray wildlife in the Rainforest. This includes Hummingbirds, Tree Frogs, Toucans, Monkeys, Parrots, Jaguars, Turtles, and various other animals who call the rainforest home. Our artisan partners consider their Jewelry designs an artistic expression, incorporating their dreams, feelings, and aspirations. They use traditional carving techniques commonly known as Chip Carving or Whittling.
EMPOWERING NATIVE ARTISANS: Since 1991, TraderBrock has been in partnership with Panamanian artisans helping them reach a global market for their handmade products. For the past twenty years all sales revenues have been reinvested into the artisan community of Panama. This includes education, medical care, land purchase, tools, and other needs.
