about

SARAH

Sarah Dunbar is an Accessory Designer based in  Gloucestershire, UK, creating bold and distinctive prints and her own range of handmade faux leather pouches, coin purses, makeup bags and tote bags.

 

Her debut collection launched in July 2018 inspired by her love of colour, art and nature. 

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.
