Created exclusively for Guide Dogs by Just Trade, this award-winning Labrador shaped pendant is a lovely addition to any dog lover's jewellery collection.
Each pendant is hand-carved from a tagua seed, from a type of palm that grows in the South American rainforests. Often known as vegetable ivory, tagua is a vegan, ethical and sustainable alternative to animal ivory.
Just Trade work with highly skilled artisans in Cerro Grande, Ecuador, to invest in local artisans and sustainable routes to market for their jewellery. You can read more about the artisans who made these pendants with Just Trade.
The pendant has an approximate chain length of 90cm and is presented on a Guide Dogs branded backing card.
Tagua is a natural, porous material and may darken over time; this patina is normal and adds to the character of your piece. Clean only with a soft, lint-free cloth, do not submerge in water or cleaning solutions. Tagua is hardwearing but can chip or crack if dropped or knocked.
