Sarah van Oosterom
Sarah's designs centre around the unique natural qualities of leather and how carry items interact with the human form. With a degree in Fine Art (RMIT Melbourne) and having studied under master craftsmen in Australia and Japan, Sarah has a refined technique in leather crafting incorporating local and foreign, traditional and contemporary skills, techniques and tools. All leather and patterns are measured and cut by hand. Time is taken to piece together every element and up to sixteen hand made processes are used per bag.
Leathers are carefully selected from local and international suppliers for their particular application. The most ethically produced natural leathers are used where possible. Every piece is meticulously hand crafted in a boutique artist studio in Melbourne with the same passion and attention to detail as the work of an artist.
