Corozo

Corozo is obtained from the nut of a palm tree grown in Ecuador, South America. It is commonly called "Vegetal Ivory" for its resemblance to ivory due to its beautiful natural grains unique to every nut.

Its recognizable veins are enhanced by its ability to take on dye perfectly. Can be burnt as well to achieve a burnt look.

Bone

Ethically sourced Bone from which we make our articles is specially treated to remove any fat content from it. This helps in getting a uniform white color, which may be easily dyed to your preference. 

Characteristics of bone are its veins in the material and its heaviness in weight. Can be burnt as well to achieve a burnt look.
