Vegan Silk Tapestry Box by brizel4theanimals

Brizel4TheAnimals presents, Tule Elk, a unique handmade decorative round Silk Tapestry Box, made of vegan banana silk yarn, perfect as a nature trinket !

Tule Elk is a lovely soft fiber arts container featuring vegan banana silk yarn in variegated reds, vanilla creams & brown cinnamon bark. It has a lid of its own which is embellished with a stamped metal elk image at the center of a cream vintage button.

Not far from where i live, there are herds of tule elk, these are a smaller, light-colored subspecies of the American elk or wapiti. In animal totem lore, elk signifies power, strength, stamina and nobility.


I own some 20 acres up in the mountains where I have planted orchards and floral gardens. Personal funds are put towards helping to sustain this habitat which attracts birds, butterflies, bees, bats, hummingbirds... and it is also a seasonal mating ground for dragonflies ! Twilight is part of a 2,000 acre ranch out in the chaparral wilderness where wild animals still roam.

I provide a home for my animal rescues, create habitat for wildlife to prosper, support animal welfare through petition & animal advocacy work, donate 10% of my Silk Tapestry Box sales to EFA's Charity of the Month, and promote & support Team EFA members through Etsy Treasuries & the EFA blog. I am also Team Leader, Membership Leader, & Blog Mistress for Team EFA !
