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.
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.
