Sarah Dunbar is a Designer creating contemporary, abstract prints originating from her own photographs and artwork.
In July 2018, Sarah launched her debut collection inspired by her love of colour, art and nature.
She designs and makes her own range of fashion accessories from her home studio in Gloucestershire, and boasts a range of handmade faux leather pouches, coin purses, makeup bags and tote bags.

ABOUT THE ART
Each design originates from a photo or artwork created by Sarah. Inspiration from travels around the world or closer to home, including the magical colours of a Cuban sunset, the image of waves crashing on to a Cornish beach, or the sprawling landscapes of the Lake District. These photos or prints are then digitally developed and handcrafted into vibrant accessory products, making each product individual.

LABOUR OF LOVE
I studied design for exhibitions and museums at University before pursuing a professional career project managing exhibitions and events for over a decade.
I have always harboured a desire to create my own line of handmade products and in 2018, I set myself a new challenge and left my permanent job to establish my own design business. I’m focused on creating vibrant designs to handcraft gorgeous accessories for everyday uses.
All the products I make are made from quality fabrics and sourced within the UK, staying true to my values of sustainable and thoughtful production.
SEW FAR, SEW GOOD
I design all the prints myself and all products are sewn by hand from my home studio in Gloucestershire. The whole enterprise is wholly UK based – something I place a lot of value upon.
Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to know more about my designs, products and how I create each one.
