The Trapezium Shell is a robust, classic sea shell shaped addition to your collection. Covered in delicate stripes that look like they have been penned on with the finest felt tip marker around the circumference in chocolate brown. Delicately shaded in caramels and creams, the scalloped spiral shape widens as it swirls around. Underneath, the shell is a rich chocolate brown, echoing the colours of the stripes.
A very affordable, large shell, approximately 10cm - 12cm in length these are a fantastic addition to any shell collection.
Mindful Sourcing of Shells and Marine Life:
We support the company that supports the oceans. My supplier collects shells that are abundant, commercial-grade shells. The shells we sell have originally been collected for food or are the by-product of licensed fishing and aquaculture operations. This means we get to share and enjoy shells that would otherwise be waste.
I source my shells from a company that are mindful of their overseas harvesters and use fair trade practices. They have voluntarily committed to an industry Stewardship Action Plan to adapt responsibly to working in a marine environment and also contribute to scientific research projects and participate in government initiatives. In November 2008, the fishery was presented internationally as an example of the world’s best practice in ecologically sustainable fisheries management.
