The placemats were and coasters were molded using the young lampirong shell, a native shell delicacy found in our seas which Ilonggos love to eat when in season. It is first charred for color then baked soft enough to mold. This molding technique started in the early 1900s and is still currently being practiced by local fisher women along the coastal towns of Panay Island.
This shell product does not use an endangered shell species. It can legally be brought out of the Philippines.
