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.

News - 100 Day Project

One of the things I struggle with is allowing myself enough time to actually sketch and draw. It is so easy to get caught up doing the many other tasks required to run a small business.

Back in December I participated in a 30 Day Drawing Challenge which I thoroughly enjoyed. Not only was I able to improve my drawing skill by the repeated practice, but also at the end, had developed a library of 30 new motifs which later can be incorporated into new pattern designs.

This latest challenge is "The 100 Day Project" and runs from April 19th until July 27th. There are no rules other than to commit to doing "something" creative for 100 consecutive days. It is interesting to follow other artists to see what they are doing, for my project I have committed to posting one new drawing everyday. You can follow my journey on Instagram @sarahbertochi or with the hashtag #100dayproject, #sarahb or #sarahbdraws
