More on Capiz Parol ...
Capiz shell is a flat, semi-transparent shell with a pearlescent appearance. Capiz is often used to create lampshades or other luminescent objects, such as candle holders, because of its striking appearance when light shines through. However, it is just as common to see the bases of lamps crafted with capiz shell. Capiz is also frequently used as an accent to many household and fashion accessories. Capiz is generally considered to be elegant and formal."
Because of such excellent quality, it is used as a high class material for our lighted Christmas Lanterns (parols). It is carefully and painstakingly put together by hand in a parol (lantern). Each shell is placed to be part of master-crafted ensemble of colors and patterns to form a beautiful Christmas Lantern (parol). That's not all. With the help of special pre-programmed Christmas lights (110v) which were arranged carefully around and in the parol, it becomes a mesmerizing lighted Christmas Lantern. Dancing lights are very captivating and relaxing to watch.
