The classic "X" (or cross, depending on orientation) cuts through the dark Corozo/Tagua bark, adding emphasis and interest to this substantial button. Hand-carved in Ecuador from Corozo/Tagua nuts collected by the native people, its purchase benefits both the rain forest and the people who live within and near it. Wonderful for overall fastenings, slacks, winter coats, home furnishings, and so many other uses.

 

The nut of a native palm tree, tagua is also known as corozo or vegetable ivory. It looks like animal ivory, and can be both carved and dyed. Profits made from the nut's use provide a reason not to harvest South American rain forest and deplete the ozone layer.
