The Golden Trumpet Capiz Angel from artisan partner SAFFY, Inc. features capiz shell. Artisans wash and soak the thin shells before cutting them into shape and edging them with wire in a labor‒intensive process. Before glass windows became available in the Philippines, capiz was used for windows in houses!
