Sarah Haran believes that the possibilities for women are endless when they feel confident. Our brand was founded to empower women to reach the top and achieve their dreams. While designer handbags often prioritise fashion over functionality, we put emphasis on the everyday issues busy women face without compromising on quality and style.
Our mission is to create beautifully functional bags that you carry for decades, not seasons.
Our design process at Sarah Haran is anchored around understanding woman everyday needs, to help them feel more empowered and confident, no matter what situation they?re in.? Therefore, every handbag is not only being designed but also personally tested by Sarah for up to 6 months. During this time the design is refined and adapted until the final product fulfils her original vision. Only then she puts her name to it.
Using only the finest Italian leathers and hardware, our bags and accessories are handcrafted in small batches at our factories in Manchester and Spain by small family businesses using traditional handcrafted techniques that have not changed very much in the last 100 years they have been around. As a result, each bag can take up to 20 hours to make.
When starting Sarah Haran, it was important the quality of our leather didn?t sacrifice our commitment to sustainability or welfare of the people and our planet. Following countless trips to Europe, we found our perfect partners in Italy and Spain, who meet our strict ethical and eco-conscious values.
ABOUT THE FOUNDER
For Sarah Haran what started as a hobby, when I taught myself how to make handbags, became a passion that I finally turned into my career.
Previously the Chief Operating Officer of iomart, an AIM-listed cloud computing business, I was frequently flying all over the country and needed a stylish bag for business, travel and personal time. A bag that would keep me organised during my busy day but look stylish and chic at night.
Unsuccessful in my search for the perfect bag, I learned how to design and produce handbags in my spare time and came up with the idea of a bag-in-a-bag that could be easily restyled, the Dahlia Tote. This beautiful & functional leather tote bag soon became my everyday bag and as friends and colleagues began requesting their own, the Sarah Haran brand was born.?
