Both shopaholics and globe trekkers, it’s easy to see how a fateful Christmas in India captivated their hearts. Taken in by the energetic streets, riotous colours and artisanal products, Sage and Clare was born.
Husband and wife duo, Chris and Phoebe, had always been passionate about colour, texture and the sense that some objects have real heart. This became the crux of Sage and Clare and they started it with the aim of offering fellow interior lovers a place where they could find global treasures that are handmade, bohemian, soulful and eclectic. Serious about ethical practices, Phoebe and Chris spend months of every year overseas working side-by-side with weavers, block printers, and screen printers (to name a few!) to bring Sage and Clare designs to life.
“There is a mutual learning that occurs between us and our artisans - they teach us their lifelong trade and we teach them how these traditional techniques can also lend themselves to modern design. It’s the perfect match!”
With Phoebe overseeing the sourcing and designing of collections, styling, photography and the general day-to-day operations and Chris (outside of his day job!) providing much-needed support to Phoebe, the pair wear many hats. There is never a dull moment!
“Every day we aim to delight and inspire our customers… But most of all, we want to take you on a journey”
