August Studios is an independent textile design studio by Michelle Holik. Offering unique designer fabrics for home decor, and small batch production of handmade items. 

The fabrics are hand selected for their characteristics, and digitally printed to maintain all the artistic qualities of the original artwork.  

If you are interested in any designs for commercial use please contact us to discuss as there are additional commercially certified basecloths available. Most designs are also available for licensing, send an email if you'd like to know more. 

We are based in Geelong, Australia.

Michelle Holik is the Designer & Creative Director of August Studios. She has worked as a textile designer for leading homewares and soft furnishings brands for over 10 years.

Michelle completed her degree in Textile Design at RMIT in Melbourne, and has since worked with leading homewares retailers in Australia, New Zealand, UK, Europe & South Africa, including the iconic Australian brand Sheridan.

This experience along with expertise in hand painted artworks led her to create August Studios to share her passion for textiles, and love of interiors.

She also studied Fine Arts, specialising in hand painting and drawing, with a focus on more traditional artwork styles and techniques. 

Creating art has always been a part of her life, with strong support and influence from her mother from a young age to forge a creative career. A love of all things textiles and quality products has come together in August Studios.
