BrushArt animals are not moulded, stamped, or machined. Each is uniquely trimmed by hand almost entirely from vegetable fiber, leaves and seeds (we sometimes use felt for ears, and the ‘hot glue’ that keeps the appendages on is plastic).
For animal bodies they use a hard fiber called buri palm. The buri is the tallest palm in the Philippines, and grows throughout the archipelago. The fiber is extracted from the older fronds, and harvested in this way the palm will live 50 or 60 years.
BrushArt animals can be POSED in different positions (there's a double wire running down the center of the body). Just hold between the palms and gently twist!
