Your Guide to Capiz Shell Wallcovering

Illuminate your space with the soft, warm glow of authentic capiz shell.

our highly anticipated Cumulus and Classic Capiz collections. Prepare to be captivated by our new, innovative wallcovering collection that exudes spectacular drama and mesmerizing mother of pearl luminescence. This new Capiz Collection will transform any space into a haven of elegance and enchantment.

The true beauty of these artisanal tiles lies in the delicate luminescence of the capiz shell. As light washes over the tiles, a soft, warm glow illuminates the space, creating an ambiance of tranquility and serenity. The mother of pearl luminescence adds a touch of opulence and sophistication, making this wallcovering collection truly one-of-a-kind.



An Artisanal Masterpiece: How Phillip Jeffries Capiz Shell Wallcovering Is Made
Each capiz shell tile in this collection is meticulously crafted with meticulous attention to detail. The result is a breathtaking display of artistry and craftsmanship that is sure to leave you in awe. Our skilled artisans have expertly hand-placed authentic capiz shell tiles into a layered pattern, creating a mesmerizing visual effect that is both ethereal and captivating.

All of these shells are harvested throughout the Philippines by artisans in small villages.  To make each tile, the craftspeople start by cleaning each shell and then placing them down one by one. To enhance the drama and dimension of these exquisite tiles, our artisans have meticulously hand-painted billowing clouds onto the capiz shell tiles. The clouds create a striking visual statement, evoking a sense of movement and whimsy. Each cloud is a unique work of art, carefully crafted to add depth and character to your space.

In addition to their artistic beauty, Phillip Jeffries Cumulus and Classic capiz shell tiles are also durable. With a protective resin finish, they are designed to withstand the test of time, ensuring durability and longevity. The tiles are offered in a range of stunning colorways, from neutral tones with a lustrous finish to bold and vibrant hues that make a bold statement.

Installation Tips For The New Cumulus and Classic Capiz Collection
For the best results, we believe that a carpenter or professional tiler with the correct tools should hang this material. This is a handcrafted, natural material that may have slight variances in texture, pattern, and color all tiles will be unique. To maintain the integrity of the authentic Capiz shells, this collection requires special care. For installation, we recommend employing a skilled craftsperson who specializes in panels or tiles.

Helpful Hints To Create The Perfect Layout of Cumulus Capiz
We recommend laying out the Capiz shell tiles before installation - Classic Capiz for color variation and Cumulus Capiz
 for accurate cloud placement. Cumulus Capiz is a hand painted cloud design and items 10086, 10087 and 10088 are numbered on the back for ease of installation. Please follow the panel map below for the cloud placement. While this is the suggested layout, consult the designer for final placement of cloud position.


Classic & Cumulus Capiz is a NEW category for Phillip Jeffries and one we are really excited about. Please reach out if you have any questions or need help ordering samples. We hope you will enjoy the illumination and soft, warm glow of authentic capiz.
