Sarah Russell's Profile
My Name is Sarah, I reside in lovely Melbourne, Australia. I created my label Scotatto in 2006 and have been lovingly designing and hand making under it’s guise ever since. I was drawn to the properties of leather, its practicality as a material for making functional objects and the beautiful way that it ages with grace.
My training in leather stems from a two year custom made footwear course that I completed in Adelaide in 2005. The skills that I left studies with were nurtured through exploration and experimentation working amongst other craftspeople in various communal workshops in Adelaide and Melbourne. Currently I work from my studio space in Brunswick East. Scotatto creates fun and playful statement pieces, all designed to be cherished.
