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 the 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 many capiz shells are in Kouboo capiz chandeliers?

Delicately crafted, each of our capiz shell chandeliers, 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. 

A chandelier in your bedroom will set a subtle coastal feel even if you live far away from the shore.
