Marfil Trapecio Designer Timepiece

$ 80.00

Marfil Trapecio gets its name from its primary material, tagua, and the trapezoidal shape of its face. Tagua, a nut found only in the amazon rainforest, is a sustainable material that is as durable as ivory. Each timepiece has an adjustable size band with tagua button closure.

ORIGEN timepieces are designed and made by hand in a socially and ecologically responsible workshop in Colombia, South America. Most of the artisans are female heads of household. The tagua nuts used for these gorgeous timepieces are gathered three times per year from the pods of a certain kind of palm tree. The nut is then sliced and carved into the shape of the watch pieces. The beads can be easily colored with equally natural dyes, creating vibrant and attractive jewelry.
