New product: Brizel SiLK TAPESTRY MiNi RUGS

A new product line of stunning miniature rugs is being birthed as I write this blog... A natural progression of the Brizel Silk Tapestry technique and design work that has been evolving since 2005 when I first discovered silk sari yarn at Solfest.

I have since then, sought after a large range of colors and experimented with different suppliers... discovered the complimentary banana silk yarn during my cyber space 'travelling' and continue to explore alternative eco-friendly materials that lend themselves to Brizel Silk Tapestry.

Inspired originally by ancient rugs, Brizel Silk Tapestry is a technique that was developed to create woven rug-like thickness. Since I work in spiral formation, I adapted upon crochet... each thick silk yarn loop must be pulled tightly before the next one can be made... making the creation of a Brizel Silk Tapestry piece both a conscientious & effortful act as well as time consuming.

The silk yarn that is used to create Brizel’s Silk Tapestry Mini Rugs is made from reclaimed silk threads, left overs from a silk garment factory... which are reclaimed and hand spun into this gorgeous yarn by Nepalese and Himalayan craftswomen. Some of the rugs also have some banana silk- a silk like yarn made from banana fibers - yet another lovely eco-friendly product !

Inspired by the Mediterranean, Brizel Silk Tapestry Mini Rugs have a stunning colorful design at the front: an insightful eye, an enlightening sun, a psychic moon, an energetic spiral motif. Whatever you decide to put on it, this unique rug will surely bring inspiration to your sacred space.

These unique (one of a kind) Silk Tapestry Mini Rugs have my special Brizel logo: a lilac faux swede label with the Brigit cross, rising sun and full moon, to assure you that this item is handmade by me.
