At Sarah B. it begins with the philosophy that we can make a difference.

It starts by incorporating better materials such as natural fabrics like cotton and linen, and hand printing our designs using eco-friendly water based inks.

We strive to reduce our environmental impact by making thoughtful decisions as they relate to our materials and construction processes.

Our small accessories and bag linings are made using fabric remnants - a great means of reducing our waste.

These choices reflect our core values - that however small, we have a responsibility to "do our part”

We understand that by embracing a slow, more sustainable approach, our methods may not reflect the least expensive nor fastest route in which to bring product to market however we believe it results in a better quality product overall.

At Sarah B. we place emphasis on the art of making and we celebrate the skills required to do so.

Discover - Joan Miro

Joan Miro

Joan Miro

I discovered Joan Miro's work recently at an exhibit held at the Lowell History of Textile Museum.  Not knowing anything about this artist, I thought "she" had a great handle on the use of color, shape and composition.  After some additional research on my own, came to quickly realize that Joan, "He", is a well celebrated Spanish artist who for a period painted with the great Pablo Picasso.  I do not know much about the Cubist movement or about Surrealism, I just know I like it!

Miro's work along with many of the other "Modern Masters" (Picasso, Chagall, Leger) were commissioned by Fuller Fabrics in the 1950's to develop textiles collections.  This collaboration was significant for American design at the time because of the collaboration of textile manufacturers, museums, commercial art galleries and artists in an attempt to raise the standard of American textile design and widen the market for contemporary art.

To learn more about Joan Miro's work, you can check out links below from the Guggenheim and MOMA museums.  I hope you enjoy and please share!
