About the maker
These 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.
Balizen's 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.
Dimensions: 72in long
Made in Indonesia
Balizen has been a green and ethical brand since 1992. They offer an original line of sustainable and fair trade homewares, resort wear and gifts.
Everything in their collection is handmade, eco-friendly and has either been made with love and care in their in-house Bali workshop or by their talented artisan partners, with whom they have been collaborating for over 30 years.
Balizen not only strives to bring love and joy to their artisans’ work and to your home, but also to share the abilities and sensibilities of one culture with another, in order to open up communication and help bring people together into a global family, like their own.
