This is a completely natural product which I process in my kitchen!

You will receive a number of pieces of cactus lace fiber sheet which will be the eqÄħivalent to A4 or more. The pieces will range in size from 3" x 1" upto 4" x 10" and will vary in thickness from 1mm to 3mm..

I take the decaying parts of cacti growing around my home and break it down into the basic sheets of fiber which make up the structure of the plant itself. They have been soaked in plain old water for a few days so that all of the water holding particles inside the cacti can be scrubbed out with a toothbrush (yes I clean it with a toothbrush!) and then slowly dun dried. The end result is a naturally weathered looking product with aesthetic similarities to driftwood.

The fiber sheets have a unique organic feeling and look like an ancient root system, completely fascinating to look at. The color will be natural and can be anything from pale cream to dark grey.

The surface is not completely flat, it undulates gently with the structure of the cacti plant and has a small amount of flexibility, perhaps comparable to cork sheets. The thinner sheets are more flexible with the thicker ones being more brittle.

There are tonnes of uses for this material in sculptural or craft projects across the board but I have included a photo here where I used it for a book cover, it was just perfect for the task!

It looks beautiful simply displayed as an ornament too :)

If you have any questions about the suitability of this material for your own needs please convo me.
