Known as the “Seafood Capital of the Philippines,” Capiz is a province of the Philippines in the Western Visayas region, popular for its shell products.
The Capiz shell is embedded in the history of the Philippines as a vital part of Filipino culture. It’s used in architecture and ornamentation, and can be found in windows, chandeliers, vases, kitchenware, and many more.
We took this special material that has a rich heritage, and created a line of earrings that showcases how shell can be sophisticated when done and worn right.
As part of our Bridal Collection, our Capiz earrings juxtaposes modern design with organic material with shapes that are contemporary and geometric, and dainty and whimsical.
Our Capiz earrings promise to suit every mood, carrying with them beauty and grace that’s timeless.
Island Girl is all about that, and in an effort to further push our philosophy of green fashion and promote the belief that natural is beautiful, we have partnered with Go Lokal!, a nationwide initiative of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) that provides local manufacturers the opportunity to bring their products to the commercial and mainstream mall market.
Inspired by round bags seen on runways and spotted being slung across the shoulders of social media's most popular set, we worked with local weaving communities in Cebu and its neighboring provinces to create our version of the latest bag every girl wants in her closet.
