Sleeping Kitty
Tagua Figurine
from Ecuador

Tagua Sleeping Kitty Figurine
   Funds 5 meals

Qty.
 

This Sleeping Kitty figurine has been hand carved in Ecuador from tagua nuts, a renewable rain forest seed known as vegetable ivory for its likeness to real animal ivory, but with animal and habitat-friendly properties. All colors are achieved using natural techniques, such as boiling, fermentation, burning and inlay, that enhance but don't completely cover the nut's organic beauty. Similar to animal ivory, this figurine will gently antique or darken over time.

  • Sleeping Kitty measures 1-1/4" high x 1-3/4" wide 1-1/4" deep

We encourage you to help save rain forests by considering a tagua nut purchase from One World Projects. Please read our extended description below for more information on how tagua nut carvings are made, and how they have helped save thousands of acres of rain forest and wildlife habitat.

Handmade in Ecuador and fair trade imported.
