An 'eco' message worn on the ear, how much sexier than an environmental leaflet?!
An eco message as subtle as the colour...
There's a grain, a texture at play here, yet you can see into the depth, intriguing. What are these made from? Tagua, in its raw form it's a nut, how ordinary-sounding (yet think how eco-friendly, let's grow some more...). Here it is, skilfully transformed by hand into something so attractive, so smooth and alluring, so beautifully coloured.
