Sarah van Oosterom’s eponymous design studio was founded in 2012 by the award-winning designer. The ethos behind the studio is to produce unique and sculptural pieces that age beautifully over time.
Each piece is carefully designed and handmade either by Sarah herself or under her guidance in her Melbourne studio. Attention to detail and Sarah's love of crafting from the finest of materials sets her work apart. Making items by hand inspires community and the appreciation of craftsmanship.
Seasonal collections are avoided, alternatively pieces are created to transcend time so that you can love them for years to come.
All products are made either wholly or in part from world renowned Italian vegetable tanned leathers sourced from a region of Italy where a small collection of tanneries still practice the age old ways of vegetable tanning and hand finishing.
Sarah completed a BA in Fine Art finishing with distinction in 2007 at RMIT in Melbourne. She developed her leather working skills while training under a Japanese master craftsman in the inner eastern suburbs of Tokyo.
