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 - The #100DayProject

I am on Day 95! I had no idea when I started, if I could keep up the daily ritual-it has been a big commitment but I am determined to finish now with only 5 days remaining. The continued practice has made a noticeable difference in my skill set as well as my confidence. I have posted a new drawing everyday-the good, the bad and the ugly. Posting even those drawings I was not 100% happy with has proven invaluable. We are our own worst critic. As it happens, several drawings which in my mind were less than perfect, were in fact some of my more popular posts on Instagram.

I had the opportunity the other week to go thru and scan some of the drawings from the series and realized I had sketched quiet a few floral motifs, enough to pull together a new calendar. The above is an overview of the year - I am still tweaking some of the background colors and need to proof read but it's looking like I'll be able to offer this in my web store starting late September. I'll keep you posted once the listing is available.
