If it's possible, I like this one even more than the first one I purchased. What I love most about S-Gerth is the uniqueness of each piece, the attention to detail and the lovingly handmade quality of the work. I also received this purse in the mail in record timing -- hardly 2 days after I bought it! Sabine was very friendly and communicative with me throughout the whole process of asking for a custom order! I couldn't be happier. Thank you so much, and I can't wait to do business with you again. :-)

About

don't worry, be happy!

So, you want to know the story behind S¯Gerth and the Designer behind it? Here we go:

My Name is Sabine Gerth and I was born in Hamburg / Germany. From an early age on I loved making things. My parents encouraged me to go to the library, where I found out that they did not just provide books but also afternoons of “basteln”, which I embraced and went there every wednesday afternoon! And I would continue at home, mostly making fiddly little things with beads or Fimo.

After finishing school I decided to study communications design with a focus on Typography which I enjoyed very much, but after my degree decided to have the courage to enter the fashion world: So I went off to Berlin to study again: Fashion this time!

During this time I accidentally bumped ito a young guy from the UK, and he swept me off my feet…so we had a long distance relationship for quite some time. After I graduated I jumped into the cold water and moved to London, the City of creativity! After 3,5 years of working for an Accessories Designer and the loss of my Dad I had a year long break to sort everything. During that time my partner had a great idea to use the tiny space we had to create a tiny gallery in our bin shed. We called it limited space and organized an event for which I started making a few croched necklaces and small leather coin purses to put on display. The reaction I got was great, which encouraged me to continue and to open an etsy shop!

For now I use a dedicated corner of the living room as my studio, trying desperately not to spread out too much….With the big hope of having a studio one day…

My journey continues and who wants to meet me in person should come to the great Broadway market in Hackney/London, where I trade every Saturday! I love markets as much as car boot sales and fleemarkets.

Stay tuned for any further developments, I will keep you all informed. Thanks for the interest!
