Sarah's work involves using Batik and Shibori techniques.She designs wearable textiles and home furnishings under the brand name ‘Umoya’. “I started Umoya in the year 2007. It's creation allowed me to explore my love for colour and texture, all the while paying homage to an ancient Japanese method of resist dyeing fabric, Shibori. The process involved allows for experiments, which has always appealed to me. All of my learning came from years of practice and research. The products you see on this site are all unique because they are the results of that time and effort. In the year 2015, my husband joined me on my Shibori journey, and we took my little business out of it's shed, and slowly made it what it is today, A place where you can find unique, elegant and affordable Shibori work. Here you can find grand sarees and dupattas to keyring pouches and whimsical stuffed toys. Our family now consists of 6 wonderful women who have been trained in the fine art of Shibori. Our is a very hands on venture. If you visit our unit, you will find my husband dyeing, the ladies stitching and me in a corner, dreaming up new designs. Nothing is manufactured at Umoya, it is crafted with love and care.”
