Purchased for a friend as a birthday gift. He was thrilled with its craftsmanship, beautiful fabric and bead/medallion tassel. It is quite obvious that Hazel takes great care in crafting her lovely and unique boxes as well as other various items. I highly recommend obtaining such lovely treasures for yourself or someone dear to be cherished for years to come.

Very thoughtful and beautiful packing (but I guess that it's for me because the item is large and difficult to be folded). Nice fabric and finishing. will look out for more designs to purchase again

About

Fabric stash

Hello and welcome, I’m Hazel Gibbs and I am so pleased to share my story with you.
I make hand-stitched, silk lined, colorful fabric boxes available in my Etsy shop: Hazel Gibbs Designs.
I began making simple boxes as gifts for friends and family before I ever imagined that my creations
would turn into a full time business.
Following my husband’s retirement and our move from the UK to France, Hazel Gibbs Designs came into
being.
…And then I found Etsy. A friend with a successful shop recommended the site to me in 2010 and since
then, I have been working hard. (I never knew I would work harder after retirement!)
Each box is made entirely by me, from design to construction. Once I have a concept and can visualize a
design, I make a pattern and precisely cut each piece from large sheets of mount board for an accurate
fit. Then I construct the box by hand-stitching it together with durable cotton fabric, lining it in silk and
adorn it with a hand- beaded tab for opening.
By 2012, I realized that my vibrantly patterned, one of a kind jewelry and sewing boxes were quickly
becoming cherished keepsakes!
Grandmothers bought my heirloom quality sewing boxes for their grandchildren, and daughters began
requesting truly unique jewelry boxes as gifts for their Mothers.
It was then, that I developed new styles, and experimented with more complex designs to include lift
out trays, dividers and drawers. I welcome and encourage custom orders, as I love collaborating with
my customers and the challenge of elaborate designs. My craft is continually evolving, as well as my
skills as a dedicated entrepreneur and Etsy seller.
I have learned that hard work is essential to success, as well as promoting and networking. I have
formed a working relationship with an excellent fabric supplier, www.thesilkroute.co.uk, for the finest
quality silk, who also lends a little inspiration from time to time. (With connections like this, I feel like
the possibilities are endless!) When I’m not working on a custom project, I go to our caravan on
the Mediterranean and walk the beach with my husband and our two Collies, and I am thankful
that I get to do what I love for a living.
Whether you are shopping for yourself or for someone special, I invite you to browse my shop
and contact me for a custom designed, hand-made gift.
…Besides, jewelry is only half a gift without an artfully crafted box for its safekeeping.

Shipping
ALL ITEMS SHIP FROM FRANCE.

Due to changes by the French Postal Service, all orders will be shipped by Colissimo International mail which is tracked and insured.

Please be aware that mail entering the United States may be affected by postal delays due to increased security measures put in place by the US Government.

Delays which occur during shipping are outside my control. If you need an item by an exact date, please buy it well in advance, especially during the holiday season. If you plan to buy a custom made item please make sure you can allow 5 weeks plus delivery time. However, I always try to make custom orders well within that timeframe.

I have estimated the shipping charge as accurately as I can. If, when the item is posted, the charge for shipping has been over-estimated I will, of course, refund the overpayment.

Please note that I will always ship to the address given by Etsy. If you want me to ship to a different address, please indicate this in your Message to Seller. I am not responsible for packages that are undelivered because the address given by the buyer through Etsy is inaccurate.

I will combine shipping for multiple orders. You can either convo me so I can revise the shipping rates before you make your purchase, or you can go ahead and pay, and I will issue you a refund via Paypal. I have estimated the shipping cost as accurately as I can. If I am able to send the package cheaper than stated on Etsy, I will always refund the difference.

I always try to update 'item shipped' on your purchases ASAP.

Please be aware that any customs duties and taxes are the buyer's responsibility.

I am happy to send items direct to the recipient if they are gifts and a hand-written card can be included - just ask!

Business days are Monday to Friday. Also, the public holidays in France may not be the same as where you live so please bear this in mind when ordering.

PLEASE REMEMBER, I LIVE IN FRANCE so please allow time for your parcel to reach you. Thank you for your patience.

Holiday Shipping Notice - Please when shopping for that special Christmas gift that Hazel Gibbs Design is located in France and shipping to USA and further ends in the 1st week of December. Order early to be assured your order reaches you in plenty of time.

Additional policies and FAQs
Packaging

All orders are shipped at cost price, I take nothing for packaging and fuel etc. I use recycled products for packaging when possible. This is another great way I'm able to keep shipping prices down while helping to protect our environment.
