Capiz Green Small Chime/Mobile
This capiz chime is handcrafted in a family workshop in Bali, Indonesia from oyster shells. Jingle oysters grow like weeds in the shallow seas of Indonesia. Previously harvested solely for their meat, now the whole oyster is used! The shells of our capiz chimes clink together beautifully in the breeze!
The capiz shells are sustainably harvested and fishermen pick only the mature ones, leaving space & food supply for the young ones to thrive and grow. After harvesting, the fishermen remove the meat from the shells and sell it to their own customers. The shells are then left to dry. The artisan group purchases the shells by the ton from the fishermen, and then sort, clean and cut them to be used for wind chimes.
