About

The Art of Gifting Brizel Handcrafts

I've been making unique silk tapestries since 2005… the year silk sari yarn found its way into eco-friendly venues. I stood there mesmerized by its bright colors fully appreciating the importance of its upcycled nature: reclaimed silk sari loom warps from the weaving industry transformed into vibrant art yarn. I left the fair with two skeins and for the first time in 30 years dug up my childhood crochet needle…

Despite its beauty, in the early days silk sari yarn was thick, lumpy, unevenly spun & very unforgiving to work with. As the product became more popular, Fair Trade spinning co-operatives were formed in India & Nepal in order to meet the growing market demand and in that process some of the yarns began to be spun more evenly & in more diverse colors too. Banana fibers also became available in a similarly silk-like but vegan yarn and I began to incorporate those as well as cotton & hemp into my work.

Brizel's tapestry work is inspired by the natural world and firmly rooted by an admiration & love of French Impressionism, from Monet to Van Gogh. Combining different yarns together has created a newfound depth in color which has allowed my silk tapestry work to express itself in a more desired Impressionistic style.

In order to create Brizel silk tapestries with woven-like rug-thicknesses, each silk yarn loop is pulled in tightly one at a time... sometimes arduously but always with very satisfying results. With a palette of silk sari threads from India & Nepal and embellished with awesome vintage or stunning modern art Czech glass buttons… Brizel's treasure art boxes, dry vases and other silk tapestry artwork continues to flourish year after year allowing me to present you with completely unique handmade home decor gifts to delight you and your gifting recipients.

These home decor gifts are perfect for events such as housewarmings, dinner parties, Valentine's Day, spring celebrations, Mother's Day, birthdays, special occasions, commemorative days, seasonal events, Christmas and any other special day… Brizel is here to make all them memorable and extra special !

All items are gift wrapped & sent via Priority Insured Mail within 1-2 business days. Please let me know how else I can meet your every gifting needs.
