TRADERBROCK - Welcome to the Rainforest

Dear Customer,
Panama is in total lockdown. No tourists, no sales, no food, no medicine. That is what is happening to the Kuna, Wounaan and Embera tribes in Panama. We have worked with them since 1990 and know they are desperate. Traderbrock, Molamagic and Molamadness will match all sales revenue and use it to purchase molas, tagua carvings and baskets until the crisis is over. We have church pastors and others that sell regularly to us via photos and payment through Western Union. The art is shipped through the mail. We have been doing this for years but now it is critical to help the poorest of the poor. Please share this message with your friends.

Estimado cliente,
Panamá está en un encierro total. Sin turistas, sin ventas, sin comida, sin medicinas. Eso es lo que les está pasando a las tribus Kuna, Woumaan y Embera en Panamá. Hemos trabajado con ellos desde 1990 y sabemos que están desesperados. Traderbrock, Molamagic y Molamadness igualarán todos los ingresos de ventas y lo utilizarán para comprar molas, tallas de tagua y cestas hasta que termine la crisis. Tenemos pastores de iglesias y otros que nos venden regularmente a través de fotos y pagos a través de Western Union. El arte se envía por correo. Hemos estado haciendo esto durante años, pero ahora es fundamental ayudar a los más pobres de los pobres. Por favor, comparta este mensaje con sus amigos.

Folks, this is an unusual carving in the sense that after it was carved it was dyed. It was dyed in a cocobolo wood dye that the basket artists make for their basket fiber. Usually the basket artists are women and the tagua carvers are men. So what happens is the tagua artists dip their carvings in their wive's dye. The key to the result is the length of time the carving remains submerged. Then the artist then "carved" away the area that is now white. This results in a carving with two colors.

Each tagua carving is a one-of-a-kind treasure.

Shipping is included within the USA.
