Mujus uses only the highest quality recycled or sustainable materials like the tagua seed.
Tagua: A Rainforest Miracle
Mujus' signature material is the tagua seed. Also known as vegetable ivory, tagua originates from a palm tree that grows in the Amazon rainforest. When ripe, the tagua fruit falls to the ground and is gathered and dried by local communities for a period of up to eight months, after which it becomes extremely hard and ivory-like. Since the seeds are harvested after they have fallen to the ground, there is no damage done to the rainforest during the harvesting process. And since no two seeds are alike, you receive a piece of jewelry that is uniquely yours.
