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.


Design - Screen Printing 101

I have long admired screen printing. I love the crisp image that results from the process. I love that by layering translucent ink, you create a third unique color where the original two colors overlap. Screen printing also allows for a consistent print result and multiples/volume prints are more easily achieved.

I have been feeling very "comfortable" with my block printing and decided I was ready to "take the plunge" into setting up my own screen printing space. The first challenge was how to make my own transparencies and how to burn my own screens (I do not have a dark room nor an exposure unit) After much searching I located a company that will handle both these steps - I send in my own original artwork, sized to the screen I want use for printing purposes and they send me back a fully processed screen ready for ink. I successfully pulled my first few prints and I am looking forward to doing more.
