This product is made from capiz pulp and a recycled plastic bottle. Capiz pulp is made from the residual material from the capiz production. Capiz is a fairly flat translucent shell found in large quantities in the sea around the Philippines. Pieces of capiz remain in the production of Kinta’s capiz products, which are recycled into capiz pulp products. The capiz pulp is applied over a recycled plastic bottle. The bottle inside ensures that the vases and flowerpots are waterproof. The products are handmade with great care, the people working on the products are paid a fair price/income by Judith Lorna .
