You receive a truly multicultural custom piece where the artist is getting a fair amount of money for their work. All feathers are ecologically sourced with humaneness in mind. The Parrots are living a happy existence in Pennsylvania, andnot from the feather industry in China.
All leather used is a byproduct of the meat industry ensuring that the animals were never farmed solely for their skin. rather using the entirety of the animal ensuring no waste
How it works is Alyssa receives the measurements taken from the instrument she’s making the piece for and drafts a completely custom pouch or ceremonial bag for example. Each commodity is unique to its purpose and to its person; the loving details are hand sewn for your exact intentions.
All leather comes from a US-based company which sources hides from the meat industry, ensuring the reduction of waste.

A Word from the Artist
I want to thankk you personally for your interest in my artwork. I feel that my art is an extention of how I live my life, just as each small daily act is a reflection of the larger picture of one’s life. Every day, I move towards a higher allignment to the ideals and standards that I hold for myself: to be a good friend, to be true to my words, to forgive myself for any misguided actions, and most of all to stand with integrity in all that I do. Needless to say that does not always happen, that is where the forgiveness comes in! I am just a regular person, just like you! Lets stand together to create the beauty with which we wish to be surrounded.
