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 - It's a Winner!

MoodyJungleWinner

I received some good news the other day, the pattern I submitted to the "MoodyJungle" challenge was selected as the winning design! Printed Village sponsors four to five monthly challenges for surface designers. Each design brief provides the theme, a few guidelines and/or restrictions plus an inspiration board to get you thinking in the right direction.

I made a conscience decision this year to participate in more of these type of competitions.  It's a good way to stay active in the community, to get your work out to more folks while building a portfolio and with any luck, perhaps sign a contract and take home the cash prize.

This particular design as shown is rendered in an alternate color scheme which I submitted in addition to my original. Funny how those minor decisions can have a huge impact...

I'm looking forward to taking next steps with the manufacturer. My design will be printed on a scarf and will be presented to various retailers for inclusion in next seasons accessories launch. I am currently evaluating the scale at which to print the design and will be working with the art director at Printed Village to finalize my submission before sending it off to production. 

Below are printed samples of the pattern design rendered at different scales... stay tuned!
