About

A Tapestry of Art

Michelebuttons was established to bring a free spirited and inspired form of art, textiles and decor to a wider audience. I create from a place of inspiration. I allow my work to express what's in my soul out into the world. I'm never really sure how a painting or drawing will turn out. I also design, weave and hand dye my items this way. I try to always feel my inner knowing. This is when I'm most free.

Many items in the shop feature traditional textile techniques like hand weaving, screen printing, free form hand painting, dyeing with indigo, bleach and water based dyes. All of the pieces for the shop are created in my home studio. In my fine art work I use yarn, acrylics, dye, inks, pens, colored pencils, fabric and paper. I enjoy exploring with color, patterns and texture both in my Fine arts and Hand Woven goods.

My Handwoven items are woven in my home studio using a 10 harness floor loom. I embellish my fabric using vintage buttons, ribbons and collected items. I love recycling and reusing yarns that have been given to me or collected along the way.

I absolutely love photographing my items. I enjoy throwing in the objects I collect from nature to create little worlds for each of my pieces.

I've been a Painter, Weaver and Textile Designer for the past 15 years. I graduated from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth in the year 2000 with a degree in Textile Design/ Fiber Arts. I work in the Boston area as a Woven Jacquard Textile Designer for the decorative home furnishings market. I am also a local painter and participate in several fine art shows throughout the year. I balance my life between designing, painting and weaving and love all three equally. It has been my passion to always create and make with my hands and Etsy has given me the outlet to share my art with the world.

In my free time, I love to tend to my vegetable and flower garden, swim and float in the ocean, and listen to music. Most of all, however, I love to create art with my four cats in tow. They're pretty fun to have around. :) xoxo

Frequently asked questions

How do I exchange a shirt/ sweater for a different size?

I gladly accept exchanges for my hand dyed clothing. I would need you to purchase the correct size you wanted in order to insure and pay for shipping the exchange return. Once I receive the return shirt from you I would refund your original order minus shipping. Please convo me for return address and to confirm exchange. Thank you!

What size should I order? How will this fit me?

I have many fashion fit styles and regular fitting styles in my collection. My garments may fit differently from each other. Many of the fashion fit shirts may run small. It's very important to check the measurements for each item before ordering. Each listing includes the measurements in the description. Compare the listed measurements, all taken laying flat, with your own clothes to determine the best fit. Chest measurements are taken from armpit to armpit (can be doubled to determine the garment's circumference); length is measured from shoulder to hem. Each style may be intended to fit more tightly or more loosely, so it's best to compare measurements with your own clothes, rather than your body measurements.
