Medium Spice Capiz Chime, Indonesia
|Availability:||In stock (1)|
Dimensions — 7.5”D x 19.5” (19cmD x 50cm)
These chimes look great on their own or hung together with another one of different color for added dimension. Our capiz chimes are made up of a stunning array of shapes and colors. They sparkle in the light, and when placed outside, create a gentle tinkling of the shells.
Our capiz supply comes from a fishing village in Java, where 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.
