Drawing inspiration from the beautiful and unique Australian landscape...

Growing up in a family where creativity was a natural aspect of everyday life, as a child I soon found the joy of being able to create fabulous far-off places and wonderful exotic lands to escape to through my art…

My mother’s sewing room was always a place of intrigue, filled with pattern, colour and texture from fabrics, trims, braids and exquisite buttons, all of which unknowingly seeped into my subconscious and would later start me on this wonderful creative journey of my own!

One of the main reasons for starting Pinch River (previously stilelemente) was to be able to offer items produced in an environmentally friendly, sustainable and socially responsible manner, as opposed to mass-produced items that are more often than not produced in a way that is harmful to our planet and its occupants.

I love many and varied design and interior styles and try to offer a range of fabrics and products to suit many tastes.

My Etsy shop is stocked with lots of lovely little products, in keeping with my business ethos of minimising waste I love making small items using fabric off-cuts that are great as gifts, contemporary souvenirs and little treasures for yourself. In order to keep costs down these smaller items are not made available for wholesale or trade, however for larger homeware products and for wholesale / trade customers please visit my website.

Hello and welcome to Pinch River.

Hand made items often display characteristics that are different from mass produced items, this does not make them flawed but instead makes them unique. Please read the item description carefully as I take all care to describe items to the best of my ability, however if I accidentally overlook some things this is simply an oversight on my part and not a deliberate deception. If I am aware of any special care requirements of an item I will pass the care instructions on to the buyer. If you require further information please contact me prior to purchasing.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
Where the buyer can prove that the item purchased has not been described correctly and is not satisfied with their purchase, I will provide a full refund. However, I would expect to be advised of any problems within 24 hours of the item being received. Items must be returned in the exact condition that they were despatched by me, using the same care with packaging that I used. Items must be despatched within 3 days of receipt. I will not be responsible for original postage costs of returned items (i.e. only the return costs). I am not responsible for providing a refund where an incorrect address has been provided and the item is lost in the Post.
All prices are inclusive of Australian Goods and Services Tax (GST) so no surprises at check out. If you are International buyer wanting to purchase my products please contact me for accurate shipping costs to your country. Please understand that the distance of Australia from the rest of the world results in higher shipping costs.
Some items are offered with Free Shipping but where shipping costs apply they are based on final packaged weight, size and destination of parcel according to Australia Post / Courier prices, i.e. it is not my intention to make a profit on shipping.

I take no responsibility where items are damaged or lost in transit by Australia Post and / or their agents or Courier companies I use. It is the buyer's responsibility to ensure their delivery address is correct. If an incorrect address has been provided I take no responsibility for lost items, nor do I refund postage or pay for the second round of postage charges if the item is returned to sender by Australia Post and / or their agents.

All parcels are sent via regular post.
Additional postage services available - please contact me prior to check-out.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am happy to post a purchased item on your behalf to a third party if it is a gift. I am also happy to gift wrap items.
