Our Camoes are handmade engraves shells that, thanks to their stratified structure, aloow to vary the levels of profundity and make real minature bas-relifies.
For our creations we are various kinds of shells; for example some of the most precious shells are the African Cassin Madagascarensis, Rufa and Curnuta. They are characterized by their two clearly distinguishable, coloured that allow to isolate the figure in rilief.

The techniques have remained unchanged during the centuries, from the choice of thr branches, to the engraving, up to the finishing.
