Capiz shells are the outer shell of a marine mollusk more commonly known as "windowpane oyster". Philippine capiz shells are so named because they were originally harvested from the shallow coastal waters near the town of Capiz, on the island of Panay. Once cleaned, the shells are naturally translucent and, when painted, allow for a glorious interplay between light and color.
Natural Capiz shell is an eco-friendly, abundant, and sustainable resource found in the Pacific Ocean near the equator
