This Poodle measures approx. 4 1/2" x 5" x 2" and was taken out of it's bag for picture day.
BrushArt™ animals are hand made from the most super-abundant and self-regenerating of natural materials: leaves, leaf fibers, seeds, and seed pods, held together with wire and glue.
Most important to a BrushArt™ animal is the buri sugar palm. This tall palm tree, common throughout the Philippines, has many uses: the nut kernels can be cooked and eaten, the sap produces excellent sugar, the strong leaf midribs go into the making of cane furniture, while the leafy portions are woven into hats and bags. It is the long, thick leaf stems that provide the fiber from which the body of a BrushArt™ animal is made.
First, the stems are crushed and soaked in stream water until only strong, white fibers remain. These are combed, to separate and clean them. They are then cut to length, depending on the size of the animal and twisted on a wire core into brush cylinders. The brush is trimmed and bent, and other plant parts attached for eyes, ears, legs, etc. Organic dye is added for color . . . what could be more eco-friendly?
Buri palms live for up to fifty years and grow new leaf fronds continuously. One frond stem produces enough fiber for up to a dozen animals.
BrushArt™ animals make delightful and imaginative gifts. You can bend them into different lifelike positions—just hold firmly between your palms and twist!

Since we make our living this way, and if you are happy with our service and products, it is very important that you leave us with good positive feedback.

The choices you make on the feedback questions feeds into's computers and they rate the positioning of our listing in the categories that you may choose to view. So please consider all aspects of this before "just checking whatever". We are sometimes out of town on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and therefore can not send out your purchase until Monday.

You will get a tracking number in your email when we send out the shipment. You can go on and find out where that package is at all times.
Please email us with any questions. Thanks for looking! Good luck.
