Announcement   Brizel4TheAnimals sells Hand Woven Guatemalan Fabric Sash Belts; Hand Crafted Tagua Nut Jewelry; and Home Grown Seasonal Goods from my land.

ABOUT THE WOVEN FABRIC SASH BELTS…
These Fair Trade Guatemalan textiles were hand woven in the 1980's… and are currently available in over 70 different unique & distinct color designs. New Old Stock (NOS) fabric belts which can be worn as sash belts with your gypsy bohemian style clothing and boho chic fashion wear... for special occasion events such as Reenactment Clothing for Renaissance Fairs, LARP Costumes, Music Festivals and Burning Man Fashion statements. They can also be used to make obi sashes or kimono belts… hat scarves or head bands… guitar or drum straps. Use them as embellishments, decorative trim, house decor… or for any other limitless crafty project your imagination would like to create with them.

ABOUT THE TAGUA NUT JEWELRY…
Hand crafted by me with an eco-friendly renewable 'petrified' wood from the Amazon rain forest... A nut of many names, tagua grows on the edge of the rainforest on a palm type tree in a cluster formation called ‘cabeza’ (head) and when the nut ripens, it simply falls to the ground. Harvested & dried over a period of three plus months. Under its brown skin lies a beautiful natural white "ivory" like material… hence the reason it's also known as 'vegetable ivory'. No animals were harmed - it's totally yummy & vegan.

About

For the Love of Animals

Inspired and excited by the Mission of Team EFA, Etsy for Animals, I joined this group in 2009 and opened Brizel4TheAnimals to focus this shop on fundraising for animal charity. Currently, this shop donates a minimum of $10 each month to The Whiskers Syndicate with an overall 10% donation of its yearly sales. Donating part of this shop's profit to animal rescue brings extra meaning to every sale and we thank each client for making a difference possible one purchase at a time.

Brizel4TheAnimals' shop shares with you three different product lines...

An extensive collection of handwoven sashes from Guatemala. These sashes are hand loomed vintage / new old stock cotton fabrics reclaimed from Las Manos, a fair trade business which commissioned their creation directly with Guatemalan weavers during the 1980's. Two decades later when they closed their shop doors, I was able to acquire & rescue these woven gems from otherwise uncertain fate. Today, I continue to make these sashes available to the public… not only to preserve a noteworthy weaving tradition in Guatemalan textiles but also to bring their functional beauty into your lives.

Equally colorful, handmade jewelry crafted from tagua nut. This is an eco-friendly renewable 'petrified' wood from the Amazon rain forest... a nut with many names, it grows on the edge of the rainforest on a palm type tree. This gorgeous wood, also known as vegetable ivory, is sustainably harvested & dried over a period of three months. Under its brown skin lies a natural all white ivory-like material which can be stained in a wide range of colors. Tagua has been traditionally used for small carvings, tool handles and also for button making. Today, the bead industry has made it possible for jewelry makers to put their creative ideas to work. I hope you will find something you'll love amidst my offerings.

Also available here are homegrown seasonal organic products from my land, Twilight… Bearded iris rhizome bulbs for your garden; raw fruit wood sticks for your rodent pets; and edible dried lavender.

Brizel4TheAnimals is a one person business- every aspect is handled by me. Thank you for your patronage !

    Zippy Zip, aka King Zip, because he slew a rattle snake at our front door a number of years ago. Abandoned by a neighbor, 'White Cat' found his way up to Twilight and asked if he could stay… its now been 12 yrs.

    WhisPurr was surviving at the local gas station until I spotted him a year ago. He was very outgoing, gregarious & obviously needed a new home… so he's here now <3
