Elisa Shine's Profile

About

I live in Canada in the beautiful mountain community of Argenta, British Columbia in a Natural Earth Cob home. I create my felted art in my wonderful straw-bale studio and I enjoy 'Living Life as Art ' with my husband, a sculptural artist and our two children.

My love of fibres and the sweet, soft, wool of the english angora rabbit led to an exploration of wet and dry felting. Incorporating the things that I love in life, wearable art became my passion. My current work is hand-felted and constructed from merino and english angora wool, and silk.

Reducing my footprint on the planet is really important to me. I make every effort in my business by:

* Sourcing my wool locally from sheep and rabbits that have been lovingly cared for
* I use "green silk"…

About

Reducing my footprint on the planet is really important to me. I make every effort in my business by:

* Sourcing my wool locally from sheep and rabbits that have been lovingly cared for
* I use "green silk" which means that the silk worm is allowed to live out it's life and the cocoon is harvested after the worm abandons it.
* I reuse my scraps of felt, nothing goes unused
* Only one tiny bag of waste is is thrown out from my studio every month. Everything else is recycled.
* I walk a very short way down the road to the P.O to ship packages ... so close, no need to drive.
* I use attractive 100% recycled packaging
* Hat tags are printed on recycled card stock with vegetable based inks
