The eagerly awaited gorgeous goodies from the uber talented Sas & Yosh are now available to buy through their website. I went to their launch party last night to celebrate with them.
Sarah ( Sas ) and Yoshie ( Yosh ) both grew up on different sides of the world in Japan and the UK, with limitless creative minds and a massive passion for their creations. Sarah’s background is in art and media, with an MA in Children’s Book Illustration, whilst Yoshie studied Fashion at ESMOD in Tokyo and then worked in design. Alongside this, both Sarah and Yoshie are published children’s author / illustrators.
This special collaboration project started very naturally in 2014, after they met and fell in love with each other’s artwork. Sarah and Yoshie produce artwork for both children and adults and their collections are full of colourful inspiration, contemporary design and original illustration.
Little Flea caught up with Sarah (Sas) to find out more...
LF: Where did you and Yoshie meet?
S: We met through another mum who my daughter was at nursery with. She knew Yoshie and I had both created Children's books and she thought we might get on. Match made in heaven is what we say!
LF: What are you inspired by?
S: We are both inspired by colour, pattern and different cultures. Funnily enough Yoshie is really into western culture and i'm obsessed with all things Asian and Japanese so we are both inspired by each others culture and each other. Yoshie is also obsessed with collage and I love creating tiny details in all our work.
LF: What is included in your new range?
S: At the moment our in house range consists of wallpaper, wrapping paper and tea towels but we want to branch out into textiles and all sorts of other areas….stationery, fashion collaborations and more homewares. We also have been working on commissioned illustrations and designs for other companies.
