Tagua Butterfly Ornament
Add a touch of spring to your Christmas tree with the Tagua Butterfly Ornament. This Ornament was handmade in Ecuador by Camari: an income generating program that works to enable small farmers, or “campesinos,” to remain in their home communities instead of leaving to find scarce work in the cities. Camari unites people, works to ensure they receive stable, fair income and enables them to carry on family traditions of working the land, as well as preserving indigenous culture through the creation of traditional crafts.
The value of tagua nut for craft production encourages the preservation of rainforests in South America.
