Natural Capiz Strand
Regular price $ 14.00
Our capiz strands are very popular, coming in a large selection of beautiful color combinations. They create a lovely environment in any setting and come with a metal ring at the top for easy hanging. Our capiz supply comes from a fishing village in Java, where our shell artisans sustainably harvest the shells and shape them. All parts of the capiz (jingle oyster) are used; the meat is used for food, the main part of the shell for handicraft, and the shell waste for fertilizer. Only full-grown shells are picked from the kelp beds, where they grow, which provides more space and food source for the young ones to grow.
