Where are you based and what areas do you cover?
Michessie is based in Johannesburg, South Africa. We do ship nationwide and internationally but we need to know quantities and your location before we can price shipping.
How do I order?
Many of our pieces are unique, so stock in our online store changes frequently.
For wallpaper – send us an email with details of the room and size of wall you are considering for surface art. Please note the work is in keeping with the style of the artist; contemporary/abstract unless it is for a nursery.
For scatter cushions – please order from the shop. Should you want bespoke fabric, please contact us to discuss. Please note: while we do have some stock, most of our items are bespoke.
How long will my order take?
It depends on the order – but we will give you all relevant information upfront and keep you informed throughout the process.
Can the printed and hand painted fabrics be washed?
Yes – but a more gentle wash and drying treatment is best for optimal colour retention. If there are any specific care instructions they will be included with the product.
Can I clean the wall paper?
Yes, with a damp cloth and mild detergent. It is not advisable to saturate surface with chemical based cleaners.
Do I hang the feature wall paper like any other wallpaper?
Yes, the papers are installed with wall paper paste like other professional wall papers. It is advisable to get a professional to hang the papers.
Can I hang the papers in damp places, like bathrooms?
Yes, our printers have speciality mould resistant papers for damp conditions. It is important to state with enquiry that the intended room is a bathroom or damp area.
