About Sarah Skapa

Hello! I'm Sarah, the maker at Sarah Skapa. Skapa means “create” in Swedish, and I’ve been creating for as long as I can remember. My interests and mediums keep changing, but my drive to make the world a little more colorful hasn’t changed a bit. I enjoy hiking, camping, kayaking, and pretty much any other outdoor activity. A lot of the patterns and color combinations I use when creating are pulled straight from something I saw when out exploring. I aim to make durable, functional goods to make your day a little brighter.

My soy candles have exactly what you want, without any unnecessary junk. They have no dyes, all phthalate-free fragrances, metal free wicks and come in reusable containers with removable labels.

I create all of my leather goods entirely by hand. From selecting and cutting the leather to stitching and riveting, each piece is produced using only manual tools and my hands. The saddle stitching is extremely sturdy and has two separate threads running through each seam for incredible durability. I'll guarantee the seams for life!

My ice-dyed goods are so much fun!! Each item takes over 24 hours to produce and is totally unique. Items are soaked in a natural dye fixative then carefully “crumpled” by hand and covered in ice with powdered professional dyes added last on top of the ice. As the ice melts and the dye runs through the fabric the colors swirl and pool creating gorgeous patterns in the fabric. Truly one of a kind art!
