About Us

Hello! I’m Michelle, and I’d like to welcome you to Urban Swathe!  

I’ve had a passion for European travel since I was a kid, and one of my favorite things to do when I travel is discover unique and one-of-a-kind home décor and fashion accessories. I loved to bring these items back and use them to make my home comfortable, inviting, and cozy. 

Once, in Ireland, I purchased these exceptional handmade merino wool throws for myself and as gifts for my family, and I still have them today. They’re perfect for days I want to curl up and relax with a good book. The blankets are just as warm, the fabric just as soft, and the quality is just as impeccable as it was when I bought those 11 years ago. And when I realized how long ago I bought them, and how much I still love using them, a light bulb switched on: This is something that can, and should, be shared with others.  

Swathe means to be wrapped, enveloped, draped in fabric, or swaddled. I launched Urban Swathe in 2014 because I wanted others to have the opportunity to experience the same comfort, beauty, warmth, and joy from these products as I do. 

I’d like to invite you to bring a little of my home to yours or your loved ones’. It’s incredible how a wool cashmere blend throw, a few decorative pillows, wonderfully soft cotton towels, or a unique fashion scarf can make a home (or you!) look and feel. These are perfect for celebrating new baby, weddings, or just weekends. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.  

Thank you for stopping by. Please make yourself at home!
