Kitty keeps your place in the book. Cat-themed bookmark is handcrafted from capiz shell and wire. Capiz is the thin shell of a marine mollusk. First artisans wash and soak shells. After the shells have dried, they are cut into shapes and edged with metal wire. A finishing coat of varnish completes this labor-intensive process. Before glass windows became available in the Philippines, capiz was used for windows in houses.

Makes a great gift for a friend who loves felines.
