LEARN MORE ABOUT TRANQUILITY CONCEPTS
WHAT WE DO
We are an importer of Capiz shells from the Philippines. Each of our products are individually hand formed and many are painted for numerous applications. Our signature product is a floating lily which can be used for ponds, pools and gardens.
FROM RAW CAPIZ SHELLS
WITH SOME MAGIC
Tranquility Concepts is a unique company that combines cutting edge product management with the creation and delivery of exquisite items made from local Capiz shells (also known as oyster or marine mollusk) harvested in Capiz, the Philippines. Local artisans skillfully and meticulously craft each piece using methods and resources indigenous to the region in both style and quality.
INTO MAGICAL WORK OF ART
DR. LOURDES L. BLAKE Founder/Owner
A native of Capiz, Dr. Lourdes L. Blake, DMD, established the company in 2013, bringing awareness of these aesthetically distinctive marine-derived products to the world as well as providing a livelihood to Capiz residents who diligently create these wonderful works of art.
Your deepest roots are in nature. No matter who you are, where you live, or what kind of life you lead, you remain irrevocably linked with the rest of creation.
CORAZON TIANGCO Expert Consultant
Lourdes’s cousin from the Philippines, is our expert consultant and hands-on collaborator in the design and production of our well-crafted quality shell products. Based in Roxas City, Capiz, she had the foresight and keen sense of a unique business opportunity in introducing these beautiful items to the Philippines and select international markets many years ago.
If there is one thing clear about the centuries dominated by the factory and the wheel, it is that although the machine can make everything from a spoon to a landing-craft, a natural joy in earthly living is something it never has and never will be able to manufacture.
