Panama + Ecuador
Corozo or Tagua (Ta-goo-ah) is a nut from a tropical palm tree. Our corozo buttons are made by Corozo Buttons, a family owned company that dates back to 1982. The nut is taken from forests in Northern Ecuador. Many of the people who collect the nuts are small family run farms. After picked, the raw nut makes its way to traders on the coast who ship a finished button to Corozo Buttons in Panama. At Corozo Buttons, the now blank buttons are etched, dyed and given a finish. At Soluna all of our buttons are undyed.
