Purchase of Metafour Studio Handwovens

  • Colours are difficult to represent accurately. All care is taken to capture the true colour of a piece in images provided, however all computer monitors display colours slightly differently. If exact shade is important to you, we are happy to work with you to either see the piece or yarn in person, or post a sample of the yarn to you.


  • Please be aware that Metafour Studio has a resident Studio Dog. While all care is taken to remove any stray dog hairs from your finished piece, we do not guarantee that items are free from all┬ádog hair. Please consider any allergies you or your giftee may have before purchasing.


  • Items that are handmade will look different to factory made items. It is normal for handwoven items to have slight unevenness in the edges – that’s how you know it’s handmade.


  • Dimensions for pieces are provided as a guide, and actual size may vary by small amounts.


  • All pieces are shipped with a care card specifying the materials used and their proper care. If this card becomes lost, please get in touch to check the care instructions for your piece. In general, your piece will have a much longer life when treated with care in laundering, and most pieces are best handwashed in cold water and left flat to dry. Metafour Studio does not accept returns on items which have been handled inappropriately.


  • All Metafour Studio handwovens are woven in Melbourne by the artist, Michele Fountain. When you buy a Metafour Studio product, you are directly supporting a working artist.
