Acacia Wood Cannister (Small)


Beautifully grained acacia wood is carved by hand and topped with a laminated capiz lid to create this storage canister. Capiz is the thin, off-white shell of the windowpane oyster. Divers retrieve the shells from the local sea (holding their breath to complete the task) then makers at Saffy Handicrafts wash and soak them. After the shells have dried, they are cut into shapes. The lamination process ensures the lid is extra durable.
