■ La tagua, Yoko Osawa / Jewelry
Born in 1972 in Tokyo, Japan
Having a grandfather and father who were both painters, Yoko Osawa became interested in art at an early age and studied textiles in Kansai, Australia, and Denmark.
She studied textiles in Kansai, Australia, and Denmark, and later studied under Masako Friedenberg in the U.S. She designs and produces accessories made from a natural material, the seeds (tagua) of a plant called "vegetable ivory palm" that grows wild in the Amazon of South America. The concept of ethical accessories is to prevent deforestation by using naturally fallen seeds, and to protect animals from poaching by using them as substitutes for ivory and cow horns.
