About this project

I need to raise $5,000 to begin introducing tagua to the world!

Tagua is an eco-friendly product.

Tagua products come from the tagua nut (pictured above), which is naturally shed from palm-like trees grown in South American tropical rainforests (no damage is done to the trees or surrounding land). It is also an alternative to animal ivory (the substance inside is an ivory color that looks and carves much like animal ivory, hence its nickname "vegetable ivory"). This product has also made a social impact by providing South American forest workers, artisans, and merchants with employment opportunities.

This material is carved and tinted by talented South American artisans and crafted into beautiful jewelry!

I want to share this jewelry with the world because

1) I love bright, beautiful, conversational jewelry that is both high-quality and affordable. This jewelry takes on the style of the popular plastic jewelry out there, but this has a much nicer finish and feel to it. 

2) This is such a unique, low-impact, and eco-friendly product that people can feel good about buying and wearing.

I know people will adore this unique and beautiful collection if I can only introduce it to them! In order to turn this dream into a reality, I would be grateful for your support so I can purchase and market the product, as well as formulate packaging. Thank you for helping me to produce the Hobo Jo Collection by Bumbleberry Lane!
