Like what you see here on Solo Seattle? I am open for commissions! I am currently offering 13 commission slots each month through Ko-Fi with introductory pricing! These prices will not last long.
No commission slots available?
I’m currently in the process of creating a Patreon that will launch after the Youtube Channel goes live. Higher tiers will have the chance to “cut in line” with commissions. This may be a better option for you!
Faux Fur Silk Throw: $300
Smocked Silk Pillow Duo: $500
The Lux Bundle: $700
Oh my goodness, why so expensive?
Supplies, labor, and shipping are the main culprits here. I start with high-quality, handmade dupioni silk and high-quality hi-pile faux fur.
Time is another major player. Each pillow takes approximately 25 hours a piece from start to finish. Inner cushions are also created from scratch.
Last, but not least is Shipping. To ship a pillow duo from Seattle to New Haven, CT is $50 with shipping discounts. I wish I was kidding. This is built into the pricing.
If you wish to make your own set, I won’t stop you. But luxury items come with luxury pricing and haggling attempts will be ignored. After the first three months, I will lift my prices to reflect the effort that goes into each piece.
So you’ve purchased a commission from me? First of all, you’re amazing.
Second, once you email firstname.lastname@example.org (more information over on Ko-Fi), I’ll reach out to you via email so we can work out the colors you desire and the faux fur you’re looking for. Once we have reached an agreement, I’ll get to work.
Commission Timing: Please allow 6-10 weeks for your commission to be completed. I will reach out periodically with updates as to where your project is and once a tracking number has been issued.
Q & A:
What if I don’t like what I receive?
Then why did you purchase a slot in the first place?
What happens if my button comes loose?
These are not pillows to sleep on/sit on. The nature of dupioni silk is a fairly loose weave and the buttons ensure that gorgeous pleating on each side. Each covered button is under a fair amount of stress. Please be gentle. If your buttons do become detached, reach out to me. I can walk you through the reattachment.
My pillow smells like incense!
I’m nose-blind to the smells of my flat but often burn either Celestial incense or vanilla-sandalwood wax while working. I’m a huge fan of Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab’s perfume oils. These scents do work their way into my pieces. You can let the pillows air out for a couple of days, the scents will fade.
What if my throw or pillows get dirty?
Dryel or your local dry cleaner will be your best friend.
I want to share these with the world!
