Capiz is the thin shell of a marine mollusk. First artisans wash and soak shells. After the shells have dried, they are cut into shapes and edged with metal wire. A finishing coat of varnish completes this labor-intensive process. Before glass windows became available in the Philippines, capiz was used for windows in houses.

I sent this nativity set to my sister as a Christmas gift, and she LOVES it!! She says it's very pretty, with delicate stained glass. I am very happy with my purchase!
