Do they need any special care?
You just have to be careful with dust, you have to remove it gently from time to time so it does not accumulate, just by making this they will be perfect. But, if you want to give them extra protection you can display them inside a glass dome or a cristal showcase.

Can I see anywhere the ones you've done so far?
Yes, on the web you have many of them: in the gallery, in the photography section, the exhibition section, and of course they often appear on my social networks (blog, instagram).

What sustainability policy do you have?
I buy in small quantities and I try to optimize the material to the maximum.
My first purchase option is always the small local business.
I do not use glues, everything is fixed by n sewing.eedle and thread.
In case the piece needs an extra fixation, I use a small amount of white glue.
I buy only two products of animal origin:
pure wool felt for The Ladies' hair, and silk fabric for different projects.
Sometimes I use feathers or leather, but only if that material has come to me in an "accidental" way, I do not buy any of these materials from the industry.
The packaging of Beruta is made of paper or cardboard, and only the photographs are protected by a plastic bag. In all cases I follow the policy to acquaire small quantities, so there is hardly any surplus.
