Canoa Naturals

Sustainable Organic Jewelry. Katie Noboa founded Canoa Naturals to provide income to women in a rural Brazilian fishing village who created jewelry from tagua nut, olho de boi, jatoba, pambil, acai seeds and fish scales. In 2016, Katie added tagua nut jewelry made by artisans in Otavalo, Ecuador, as well as capim dourado (golden grass) jewelry crafted by women in Jalapao, Brazil.  After she learned the craft herself, Katie now designs and creates the tagua nut jewelry.
