follow us on instagram! @miri.boheme.

everything here is truly handmade.

Scroll through the pages to see ALL the beautiful colors, or search by color using the search bar. Check out my new Victorian fringed silk piano scarves. Have a look at Miri's bohemian jewelry and all-natural beauty products, too!

Visit my website! www.miriboheme.com

These items are created (by me - with my own hands) from vintage and antique saris and other traditional textiles. Right before packaging, all textiles are examined one last time for quality and are air tumbled (no heat) with woolen dryer balls and a couple of drops of pure essential oil (no chemicals of any kind). The scent is very faint, but it keeps the moths away and freshens the fabric.

I realize that things look different in person than they do on the computer screen, so I take returns if you are unhappy with the color, the fabric, the quality of the item, or anything else. There is no risk to you whatsoever when you purchase an item from this store. Please contact me with any problems and we will resolve them together. I want you to be happy!

Packaging is absolutely adorable, and the shipping was fast! I have fine hair, so perhaps the clip may be too heavy for my hair because it just doesn't sit right on my head. It ends up straying away from where I placed it somehow. My hair is also very smooth and naturally straight, so that could be another factor too. Overall though, the barrette is beautiful and I'm still going to wear it.

About

Miri Textiles

Packages arrive at my home several times a week in mysterious cloth wrappers with exotic writing and crazy stamps. Inside are these breath-taking fabrics. The boy looks on worriedly while I rip them into shapes. I sit in my studio (living room couch and coffee table) and hem them. It's soooooo peaceful and zen-like. When I'm done, I show them to the boy for his critique. When I showed him my most recent piece he said, "No, mama. I don't like pretty." I said, "What do you like then?" And he said, "I like danger." So there's that.

I am obsessed. Working with these fabrics is an honor for me. I feel connected to the weaver, artist, community, and culture they came from.

Weaving is one of the oldest human arts. As an archaeologist, this intrigues me very much. Textiles, naturally, don't survive for very long under normal circumstances, but the non or semi-perishable artifacts of textiles (spindle whorls, loom weights, and even the looms themselves sometimes) have survived. Ancient cultures have left ceramics impressed with braided cord, clothed figurines, and other evidence of textile use.

Fabric has, in the past and today, been a central aspect of human culture. It is used ceremonially and in daily life. It communicates status, gender, education, wealth, power, and much more about an individual and a community. The importance of fabric to the economy and social cohesion of a community cannot be overstated. Some (myself included) even believe that weaving and other textile arts may be a crucial factor in our survival as a species. Dramatic stuff!

Right now, as my business is still just a seedling, I am working primarily with saris. I hope to branch out to other textiles soon. My saris come from three suppliers in India. All three are mothers to young boys, like me. Weird, right? These ladies are all entrepreneurs! They go from village to village buying saris from the women there. This provides income for the villagers as well. It's pretty cool being a part of a network like this that benefits so many people.

I'm loving being a part of Etsy. I've made a lot of new friends and feel like part of a creative, ambitious, electrified community!

    First and foremost, I'm the happy single mother of a five-year old boy. On the side I'm a full-time archaeological writer, an artist, a blogger, and a passionate Etsy shop owner!

  • The boy

    Critic, Model, Captain Of Industry

    The boy is a dinosaur expert and transformer aficionado. He assists in the studio, mostly by putting cherry stems into the various openings in the sewing machine. Without his help, daily operations at Miri Textiles would grind to a halt.

Hi everyone! Thank you for visiting my shop. I make these items from vintage materials. I try to describe and depict the items as accurately as possible, though there may be some variation with color depending on your computer.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
We accept payments by Paypal and Etsy Direct Checkout.
You can pay with your credit or debit card via Paypal as a guest.
For help with Paypal: http://www.etsy.com/help/article/361
Shipping
Unless otherwise stated (for example, with a custom item), all items are shipped within 2 business days of purchase.

I always use United States Postal Service First Class. Delivery within the U.S. is within 2-3 business days. If you need something quicker, let me know and I will be more than happy to accommodate you. I will send you a list of options for you to choose from and we can add any additional costs to your invoice.

For international orders, I ship via USPS First Class International. Purchasers are responsible for any duties and/or taxes levied at the point of entry into the destination country.

As part of Miri's commitment to sustainable business practices, all purchases will be shipped in very attractive recycled, biodegradable packaging. If this is a gift, and you would like the package sent to a different address, please convo me in addition to adding a "note to seller" with the address of the recipient.
Refunds and Exchanges
These are vintage fabrics and there will sometimes be little flaws such as stains or teeny holes. Although not considered a "flaw," some pieces that are embroidered or beaded have exposed threads on the back. I attempt to use only the most perfect pieces and always check for quality prior to shipping, but if I miss something and the piece is not acceptable to you, I will take it back for full refund or credit.

If an item is undamaged, but not what you expected, I would be happy to exchange it or refund your purchase price (minus shipping costs). Let's talk!

If an item is damaged during shipping, I will refund or replace the item, including my shipping costs, when I receive the original back.

Please feel free to ask me anything.
