Brizel Handcrafts presents Henrietta Hen, a unique handmade round Silk Tapestry Art Box, made of eco friendly banana yarn & recycled silk sari threads, makes a perfect retro box for nesting something special in it.

Henrietta Hen is a waycool soft fiber arts container featuring golden yellow banana silk yarn paired with a white silk sari yarn that has red & black highlights. It has a lid of its own which is embellished with a vintage ceramic chicken button cover.

Henrietta spent most of the mornin' at the beauty salon. Her white dots are perfectly symmetrical on her feathers and her beak has been preemed to the vibrant yellow she loves so much. She's ready for the big Chicken Polka Dance tonight !

This fun animal Silk Tapestry Art Box measures approx: 3 1/2" in diameter x 3" high with an interior box of 2" in diameter x 2 1/4" high. Its raw silk weight is roughly 2.5 oz (70g).

What is Silk Tapestry ?

Brizel Silk Tapestry is a technique that was developed by me in order to create woven rug-like thicknesses without the use of a loom. I wanted to work in spiral formation since most of my motifs are round in nature... i wanted the flow, form & color to follow that pattern... so I adapted upon crochet... when using a crochet hook, each thick silk yarn loop is pulled tightly before I can make the next one... so that the end result is very thick and dense.

The creation of a Brizel Silk Tapestry piece is both a conscientious & effort-ful act... all that pulling & tugging is hard work on the hands, wrists and arm muscles... but the result is well worth it and I love seeing the beauty shine through !

The silk yarns that I use to create Silk Tapestry products are made from reclaimed silk threads and loom warps, left overs from silk sari garment factories... these are reclaimed and hand spun into gorgeous thick sport weight yarns.

For vegan Silk Tapestry Boxes I use rayon; cotton with or without hemp; and banana silk yarn, a silk like yarn made from banana fibers. Please note the vegan boxes are typically softer in terms of form & shape.
