This dedication resonates with our commitment to being more than just a brand but a sustainable and organic presence within the city.



We are always looking for new innovative ways to create more solutions to the world's eco-problems, where there is always a need for more but we already have everything we need and create the most optimal designs with what we have.  

It is an exciting venture for us once we find things that may not have any purpose in the studio and create something brand new and beautiful from it, We appreciate the small things and the finer details that might not be seen immediately when looked at quickly, with that being said it creates a slower and more present energy within the studio and work shop.

Sage & Sunday is manifesting a new leaf for the way that things are created and produced, slowing down the fast paced world we live in today through the clothing that we make for our community. Sharing a piece of ourselves to create a symbiotic organism that produces a sense of renewal and elegantly so.We manifest a world that can create and produce materials through a state of presence and where we are right now.The more we focus on the future, the less of the present moment there is to appreciate. 



As we wrap up this journey through our space, we want to express our deepest gratitude for allowing us to share the heart and soul of our organic brand with you. Our studio is more than just a space; it's a sanctuary where creativity and sustainability intertwine to bring you products that echo our commitment to a better, more organic world.

Behind every eco-friendly creation is a dedicated team, a group of passionate individuals who pour their love and expertise into each design.

They are the heartbeat of our brand, weaving together the threads of innovation, craftsmanship, and sustainability. As you've glimpsed into our studio, we hope you've felt the energy, the joy, and the meticulous care that goes into every step of our process.


Kind regards,

The Sage & Sunday team xx
