Tagua Pipe Full Rind Finish Handmade
Gorgeous “100% Vegetable Ivory” pipes handmade from a whole dried Tagua seed. These have a “full rind” finish, so the exterior rind of the seed is left intact in its original brown color, and then they are hand polished to give a smooth feel. Afterward, they’re drilled to make the chamber and lip holes (you can see that the interior parts are ivory color, which is the interior layer of the Tagua seed -the “Vegetable Ivory”). This is a unique finish, giving it the brown color that contrasts with the ivory interior. These are so smooth, like worry stones, great to carry around in your pocket or just to have at home. Very chic, practical and uncommon, makes the perfect gift. These Tagua pipes are 100% natural: sustainable, organic, vegan and biodegradable. Each pipe is unique, like a snowflake, slight variations in color, shape and size are natural characteristics of all our products and should be expected. Individual uniqueness is guaranteed.

When ripe, tagua seeds are harvested and dried for 6 to 9 months. After losing all their moisture they become rock solid resembling ivory in color, texture and hardness, hence their nickname: “Vegetable Ivory”. At this point the hard seeds can be polished, dyed, cut and shaped into beautiful beads that become Muichic’s natural jewelry.
