Today I want to introduce you to Michele, the artisan behind Batisse Fashions and HomeRightonline on Etsy. Michele uses luxurious fabrics like silk, velvet, and high-thread count linens and cottons to handcraft decorative boxes, colourful glam and ethnic pillow covers, and more. If you’re looking for unique or custom handmade gifts this Christmas, head over to see what Michele can create for you!
Read on to see some of our top holiday picks and to enter a fun giveaway for your own set of silk velvet pillows or a pearl and sterling silver pendant.
Two-in-One Smart Storage Boxes
HomeRightonline is the home of the two-in-one smart storage box. These handmade decorative boxes are designed for storing stationery or jewelry or both! Michele makes each box from luxurious fabrics and embellishments, and each is lined with durable fabric and a layer of batting. Boxes come complete with note cards, envelopes, pen, and clips, plus a built-in pen holder and pocket in the lid perfect for storing small jewelry or keepsakes. Prices range from $36-$42.
This Teal Blue Fabric Box would be a stunning addition to any room! The diamond-quilted lid incorporates a luxuriously thick layer of batting, and you can personalize your box with an initial in gold braid for an extra special present. The box is 7″ x 7″ x 3″.
For a more rustic, natural style, the Tan Fabric Box is made from organic linen and decorated with a burlap rose fringed at the ends with a metallic gold bow. The neutral colours of this box go well with just about any home decor which make it a great choice for gift giving. Comes in 7″ x 7″ x 3″.
Another design I really like is this Pink Brocade Fabric Box featuring butterflies, a universal symbol of elegance and transformation. A 5″ wide decorative mesh butterfly arches over the lid of the box. Comes in 7″ x 7″ x 3″ or a larger 8″ x 8″ x 4″.
My final pick is this beautiful White and Black Velvet Box. The white velvet design decorated with pretty high heeled shoe silhouettes is perfect for any shoe-lover! Decorated with a black leather strap, black felt cut outs, and a pretty rhinestone bead for some bling, it comes in 7″ x 7″ x 3″. Seriously, what woman doesn’t love shoes?
Pink Mud Cloth Pillow Cover Set
Michele also handmakes beautiful pillow covers. Accent your space with a bit of feminine-chic with this decorative pillow cover set made with bright pink velvet and handwoven mud cloth ($82-$99). The unusual blending of velvet and mud cloth on one of the pillows adds a luxurious feel to the handwoven black and creamy-white mud cloth, while still fitting well with both traditional and modern furniture.
The mud cloth is from Mali and handwoven from strips of cotton made one at a time from a process originated by village women centuries ago. This labor-intensive technique uses tannin and clay to shape and depict symbols which tell a story.
The back of the contrasting fabric pillow is all mud cloth, and the second pillow is solid pink velvet on each side. Each pillow is interlocked inside for added durability, and closed with an invisible zipper.
Black Silk Velvet Pillow Covers
This set of elegant silk velvet throw pillows ($85-$95)would look fabulous paired with other accessories in velvet or silk and solid furniture pieces. The silk fibers in the velvet adds a luster and drape that you can see and touch, setting it apart from basic velvet. Silk velvet pillows like these are a timeless home decor piece.
Metallic Pillow Covers
These unique shimmering metallic pillow covers with bold block felt numbers will be a hit with both sports enthusiasts and fashionistas! Each cover is made with premium faux leather which drapes like silk but has the durability of vinyl (and can even be placed outdoors!) and closes with an invisible zipper. The reverse side is solid coloured for more versatility.
