Amrita accepts furs, pelt & monetary donations. If you would like your donated fur to be used for a designated cause, please specify.
Disparaged with an onslaught of synthetics, cheap & fast manufacturing and the perpetuation of increased carbon footprinting & waste, I decided to embrace fur restoration.
Taking old furs coats and pelts and restoring them to modern long term usability.
Natural textiles that work with the body, sustainable resourcing, and rekindling our overall connection with Earth; developing our respect and gratitudes for those (animals) whose have perished in the process: honoring the world around us.
After my son had an accident with TBI, I noticed he was drawn toward certain pelts. My furrier focus shifted.
My 7 yr old sought an unseen energetic connection that would calm him; make him feel safe & sequester the heightened sensory. He didn't care what it "looked" like, if it were damaged or ripped or had bald spots. He was looking beyond his sight- and tapping into how the animals made him FEEL.
And the children from all over, would gather- in hospitals, airports, on streets; to come pet his fox or badger. These little animals, that to adults, were trash, too damaged for furrier use and to imperfect for taxidermy... children LOVED them and saw the animals as being perfect - exactly as they were. Scars, a ripped eye, a lost foot: they didn't care for what they were drawn toward was the connection that existed within.
AN IDEA HIT:
I picked up my proverbial sword, my clay and animals- or what was left of them, and began to recreate.
Now, my sculptures are for the living: for those with a heart big enough to love through discernment and rejection, to look beyond the book's cover and fall in love with the radiance that is ignited within.
For those willing to embrace a new breed of compassion, to breathe, I offer you an opportunity to transform YOUR world.
