About

A creatively chaotic partnership by long-time best-friends.

A creatively chaotic partnership by long-time best-friends. With so many interests and passions, it was hard to pick a few to start, with but over the last year our focus has been on creating creating fabrics through dying, painting, shibori, drawing and turning my original photography into fabric designs through digital printing ~ Useable and Wearable Art.

We began CMbLS at a time when both of us had left the corporate world. Sandra has since returned to that work, but continues to create beautiful 1-of-a-kind pieces of jewellery, as well as providing her own unique artwork on our Doodled Denim line and running the shop when I put on my traveling hat.

We run the business from our homes, the cottage, as well as on our travels. I spend a considerable amount of time over the last few years in India, a country that continues to fascinate and inspire both of us and now design custom trips to this fabulous country, both escorted and non-escorted.

We are committed to responsible citizenship, in particular to the areas that inspire us and our creations. Each and every piece we create and sell also gives back.

5% of profits from our sales are collected for our Jhurjhura Fund. At the
end of the year the money raised is donated to grass-roots efforts surrounding children, forests, wildlife and tiger conservation in India. In 2016 we donated to the wonderful Sunshine Project Organization in Delhi that works to ensure education for street children of the area.

Keep on Creating!
Lisa

Additional policies and FAQs

A Cheeky Monkey will answer your conversation within 24 hours, during regular business hours.

***********************************************
CUSTOM ORDERS

1) After your purchase is completed, we will begin the design process.

2) I will work with you on any revisions until you are happy with your final design.

3) IT IS IMPORTANT that you please read/review your proofs very carefully! Once you approve the final proof, we can not be responsible for errors, typos, changes, etc. after this point.

4) Once a proof is approved:
*** Digital Printed Fabrics will take 2-3 weeks to print and sew. Rush orders are often possible, but additional fees may apply. Please ensure you let me know of any deadlines you are trying to meet.
*** Hand-painted Pashminas. The delicate fibres of the cashmere pashmina make the abstract art painted on them extremely variable. The final piece will be in line with the overall feel of the design chosen, and with the colours chosen, however, it will never look exactly like other pieces and makes your piece truly a one-of-a-kind treasure.

5) I try my best to represent the COLOURS as accurately as possible, and regularly calibrate my screen to reflect this, however, all computer monitors show colours slightly differently and the final printed product may vary slightly from what you see on your screen. If you have any questions or concerns about colours, please let me know.

***********************************************
FAQs

Q: I want to send this as a gift, do you do anything different for gifts?
A: Absolutely! I can ship to a different address and include a gift card, with your message on it. My packaging is carefully wrapped, but birthday or holiday wrapping paper is also possible. Just let me know in the note section of your order and/or send me a Convo within 24 hours of your purchase.

Q: Can you digitally print an image on the Cashmere Pashminas?
A: No. Unfortunately the delicate and soft fibres of the cashmere pashmina make it unable to take the printing process. If you have a personal image you wanted to have on the Pashmina, why not print it on a Pashmina Pocket to give with the luxurious pashmina? An amazing personalized gift!

Q: What is your digital printing process?
A: Designed from my own photographs, or artwork, once I'm happy with the fabric design, which I create in Photoshop, I set them up into the various patterns I will be sewing from, with cut and sew lines factored in. The dyes used in are bio-degradable and printing process is environmentally responsible.

Q: Are your fabrics treated with anything?
A: No. We do not add chemicals to our fabrics. They have not been treated with fire retardant chemicals and are for this reason not suitable for use in children's clothing or bedding.

THE CHEEKY MONKEY BY LiSa DIFFERENCE

MATERIALS
I use only the very best quality materials. One's I enjoy myself and that make me feel fantastic wearing and using. I am very picky when sourcing my base fabric, whether it's the 60gm weight silk crepe, 100% Indian cashmere pashminas, or recycled eco-canvas bags. Each chosen for a specific feel and function for each piece.

THE EXPERIENCE
Art is not just for the walls, why not wear and use it. Wearing my Moments adds an extra special feeling to the items and makes me smile!

CRAFTSWOMANSHIP
I am meticulous and a perfectionist when it comes to my pieces. It's why I don't machine sew the necklines of my ultra-fine silk butterfly tops. It may be faster, but I want the extra suppleness and drape a hand-rolled hem provides.

CUSTOMER SERVICE
I want you to enjoy wearing and using my pieces as much as I do! If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, please contact me and we will work together to make it right.
