The nut of the Tagua palm (Phytelephas macrocarpa) is when dried exceptionally hard and with its white colour and shine beautiful material.

It is used for jewelry, marquetry, finish material for luxury products (knives, pens etc.), musical instruments and figurine carving (scrimshaw, netsuke).

We offer 4 sizes of tagua nuts, from small to large.

Which size to choose

Smaller nuts are ideal for making beads and other jewelry pieces, large nuts for carving.

For slicing and cutting choose the smallest size that fits your needs.
We recommend the larger nuts for carving.

When tagua dries the material looses water and therefore shrinks. This causes cracks inside the nut.
The cracks are small with smaller sizes and get bigger with larger nuts.
When slicing larger sizes do so lengthwise on the three sides of the nuts, so the odds you'll hit the cracks is minimal.
