A vibrant green tree stands behind the nativity scene and makes a beautiful contrast. Hand-carved from tagua nut in Ecuador and fair trade.

Tagua nuts are harvested and skillfully hand  tagua is produced by a palm-like tree in South America. The nuts fall to the ground when mature, thus harvesting does not damage the trees. Tagua nut's grain is close and very hard, resembling the finest ivory. Artisans carve each nut individually into the desired form. Cultural tradition and forest preservation combine in the use of this renewable resource. As these are all hand carved from sustainable Tagua nuts, there is typically some variance in the size and shape but they are mostly 1.5 inches tall. Fair trade from Ecuador. 

This Nativity scene was acquired through a Fair Trade organization. Fair Trade pays impoverished artisans a fair price for their work. Fair Trade puts people first, not profits.

    Tagua Nativity

    Posted by Nicole Kingsbury on Jan 6th 2022

    This is well done. The intricate carving of the Mary, Joseph and Jesus are all well done, I love the detail. Such a fun small size as well that lets you place wherever there is room.
