Ingenuity, a bit of spare time, and a surplus of capiz shells leftover from fishing the Jingle Oysters that grow abundantly in Java's shallow sea beads allowed the Balinese fishermen to create art instead of discarding the shells. The BaliZen sustainable line of capiz shell chimes was designed by their founder and beautifully handcrafted by these fishermen-turned-artisans and the wind chimes are assembled in their fair trade workshop in Bali.

Capiz + Wood Wind Chimes - White
Our capiz chimes are made up of a stunning array of shapes and colors. They sparkle in the light, and when placed outside, create a gentle tinkling of the shells. Our capiz supply comes from a fishing village in Java, where our shell artisans sustainably harvest the shells and shape them. All parts of the capiz (jingle 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. All our Capiz chimes are made with care in our fair trade, in-house workshop in Bali. ~Balizen
