Where does capiz come from?

Capiz is a flat, almost transparent outer shell of the windowpane oyster (Placuna placenta), a bivalve marine mollusk, found in coastal waters of the Capiz province in the Philippines, which is where the name originated.

More shells are harvested once every two years in bays and lagoons around the island of Samal. Windowpane oysters are edible but mainly valued for the capiz shells. Originally used as a glass substitute due to their transparency and durability, these round shells have recently entered the world of fashion and decor

How are capiz shells used in chandeliers?

When harvested from the sea, capiz shells are cleaned, treated, and prepared for manufacturing decorative items, including capiz shell lighting. Materials for the capiz chandeliers you see here did not travel far from the harvesting area, as they are handcrafted and assembled right there in the Philippines.

How many capiz shells are in capiz chandeliers?

If you are looking for beachy and nautical-themed chandeliers, bring the coastal bliss right into your home with a capiz shell lamp, an unusual and modern seashell lighting piece suited for any room. Delicately crafted, each capiz shell chandelier by Kouboo, depending on its size, holds from approximately 1,500 to a staggering 3,200 hand-cut capiz shells. 

What is the best place for a capiz chandelier?

Capiz chandeliers will work wonders in any room of your house. Hang a seashell chandelier as a statement piece above the kitchen island or dining table, or give a warm glow to your front door entry. An elegant capiz chandelier in your bedroom will set a subtle coastal feel even if you live far away from the shore. Capiz pendant lamps tie the room together in a contemporary style home design, as it does in a more traditional interior. 

Despite its size, the capiz shell lamp creates a soft, beautiful glow and moves as if it's airy and light. During the day, a hanging shell lamp works as a lovely accessory, becoming a dreamy and whimsical light source at night.
