The item is gorgeous and really pops. I was concerned as the fixture is fabric but there is a hard covering that will make clean up a breeze. And the packaging!!! So so clever and thoughtful. I will be purchasing again just so I can have the pleasure of unwrapping my item. Very well done. Thank you!

These beautiful light switch covers are exceptionally well designed and packaged! I like them so much that this was my second order of many plates. They perfectly complement my home's African-themed wall hangings and statues. It's a unique detail that I haven't seen in other homes. And the packaging is exquisite! Each plate is individually wrapped with its accompanying screws and even a little screw driver tool to install them. It is a special treat to receive an order from Urban Swazi!

Great accent to a room
Adding Afrocentric Style to Your Home Decor
UrbanSwazi is a boutique, home accent decor brand specializing in African inspired, affordable, yet luxurious, handcrafted light switch covers, wreaths and wall art. These conversation pieces will seamlessly work in any area of your home. Founded by Sonya Smith, UrbanSwazi was launched for luxury residential renters and homeowners seeking standout, Afrocentric decor unavailable in the big box stores.
Each UrbanSwazi light switch cover is handcrafted and made to order. Due to the handmade nature of the pieces, fabric pattern placement may vary slightly from images shown on my website unless otherwise stated.
Whether you want to upgrade a plain, boring light switch cover or add a beautiful wreath or piece of wall art to your space, I hope you decide to choose something handmade -something ethnic - something Afrocentric - something unexpected.
Thank you for shopping Urban Swazi!

Hello! I'm a wife & a mother, and I am obsessed with all things interior design related. Plain white or almond contractor grade light switch covers make me sad. If your switchplates need a design boost, I have the solution.

Additional policies and FAQs
Q. I see similar designs from other shops on Etsy and the prices are cheaper than yours. Why are your prices so much higher?
A. You get what you pay for.
Q: The switch configuration I'd like is currently out of stock or is not listed, can you please help me?
A: Yes. Please direct conversation me. I will very likely be able, and more than happy, to fulfill your request.
Q: The image placement on my fabric light switch cover is slightly different from the photo in your shop. Why?
A: The fabric used to make your light switch cover will be exactly as pictured, but because each light switch cover is handcrafted, the cuts on the fabric may slightly vary. I assure you that your light switch cover will still capture the essence of the fabric. If there is a detail that you notice in the display photo that you want incorporated in your personal suiteplate, please message me.
Q: Is it difficult to remove my current switch cover and replace it with an Urban Swazi suiteplate when it arrives.
A: No. All you need is a flat-head screwdriver. All suiteplates come with color coordinated screws and should fit in your standard light switch receptacle. Please verify size before placing your order.
Also, if you live in a rental property, you can store your contractor grade light switch cover in a drawer and pop it back on once you move.
Q: I want an outlet cover to match the suiteplate light switch cover, is that possible?
A; Absolutely. If you do not see the coordinating outlet cover in my shop, please direct conversation me and I will be more than happy to assist you.
Q: What is Made to Order?
A: Made to Order: After the customer places an order for the light switch that they want in the switch configuration they need and I receive notification of the order, I begin to handcraft their suiteplate.
Q: Why does my suiteplate cover feel hard when it's made with fabric.
A: Although high quality fabric is used, longevity of product and ease of cleaning is very important. I use several layers of sealer for protection that hardens the fabric and gives the switchplate a painted appearance.
Q: How easy is it to clean the light switch cover?
A: Easy. All you need is damp cloth, Wet Ones or diaper wipes.
Q: Does the fabric wrap around the entire switchplate?
A: No. The fabric is hand wrapped and folded to cover just to the backside edges of the switchplate. All visible areas of your light switch cover will be wrapped in fabric.
Q: Your shop is really lacking in some design and themes that I want to see. Are you open to suggestions?
A; Yes. Please contact me with suggestions and ideas.
Q: Do you ship internationally?
A: Yes, but only to Canada.
Q: I am hesitant to order because it is just a light switchplate covered with a piece fabric.
A: Go ahead and place an order. You will be amazed by the impact such a small decorative detail can make to your wall and room. Go ahead and order your suiteplate today. After your friends and family see yours, they'll want one, too!
