This is a completely natural product which I process in my kitchen!
You will receive a number of pieces of cactus lace fiber sheet. I measure these pieces by weight as they are so irregular by nature, choose from the dropdown box the quantity of ounces you require. The pieces are a completely random mix of sculptural and interesting examples and will range in size from 3" to 6" (7 to 15cm) and will vary in thickness from 1mm to 5mm with a wide range of textures, colors and shapes.
I take the decaying parts of cacti growing around my home and break it down into the basic sheets of fiber which make up the structure of the plant itself. They have been soaked in plain old water for a few days so that all of the water holding particles inside the cacti can be scrubbed out with a toothbrush (yes I clean it with a toothbrush!) and then slowly dun dried. The end result is a naturally weathered looking product with aesthetic similarities to driftwood.
The fiber sheets have a unique organic feeling and look like an ancient root system, completely fascinating to look at. The color will be natural and can be anything from pale cream to dark grey.
The surface is not completely flat, it undulates gently with the structure of the cacti plant and has a small amount of flexibility, perhaps comparable to cork sheets. The thinner sheets are more flexible with the thicker ones being more brittle.
There are tonnes of uses for this material in sculptural or craft projects across the board but I have included a photo here where I used it for a book cover, it was just perfect for the task! I use small pieces like this as tree stumps on card toppers, they look lovely with a bird or butterfly perched on top.
If you have any questions about the suitability of this material for your own needs please convo me.
Low value orders (normally four items or less) will be sent by normal delivery. However on larger orders I use tracked mail which means that you, the buyer, will need to sign for the package on delivery. To Europe delivery should be in around 10 working days. To USA delivery should be around 14 working days. Occasionally items have taken considerably longer (upto five weeks) so, for example, if you are buying confetti for a wedding please leave plenty of time for the order to arrive comfortably.
Please send payment through Paypal to email@example.com Etsy has turned off the automatic Paypal system because I live in Turkey but that is still the only way you can pay.
Returns & exchanges
If items are returned to me in their original packaging without damage I am happy to refund on product, however postage is non-refundable.
If you need a larger amount of an item than is listed in the shop please contact me for a custom listing. I will always try my best to help with whatever you require. For bulk orders I am open to negotiation on prices...I live in Turkey after all, bartering is second nature here!
