Sarah set out to create a collection of original and fashionable artifacts utilizing historical and traditional methods of craftsmanship. Incorporating solid brass frames, trim and badging, the high quality leather pieces are entirely saddle-stitched by hand. The result is her “Crafted Fashion” collection.
