CREATE A MAGICAL SPACE WITH ARTISAN SHELL STRANDS Made from sustainably harvested Capiz shells, these lovely shell garlands come in several beautiful color combinations and are easy to hang in any space. The Capiz supply comes from a fishing village in Java, where shell artisans (fair trade) sustainably harvest the shells and shape them. All parts of the 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.
Fantastic on a porch, as room divider, window treatment or just hanging in a tree. Available in Fiesta, Natural, Silver Lining, and Tide Pool Teal. Mix and match colors to create the perfect mood in your space.
