Capiz Shell Windchime - Inverted Blue (Fair Trade)
This item may be out of season or currently out of stock. Please check back.
These fair trade capiz chimes sparkle in the light, and when placed outside, create a gentle tinkling of the shells. The capiz supply comes from a fishing village in Java, where 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. These Capiz chimes are made with care in a fair trade, in-house workshop in Bali.
Capiz windchimes may be used outdoors in a spot that is protected from the wind or as a home decor piece indoors.
