Founders Sarah Schwartz and Ruby Geisler share a love of pattern and all things handmade. Years of surface design exploration has led them to seek out traditional artisan processes and the “perfect imperfections” that result. Sarah and Ruby combine their passion for artistic, handmade methods with inspiration from their natural environments (Sarah, in the Bay Area, and Ruby, in San Diego) to present a distinctly Californian point of view. Organically-formed, colour-drenched motifs, quality materials, large scale proportions, and overall simplicity blend together to create a look that’s both statement-making and contemporary.

Sarah & Ruby’s handprinted wallpaper collection is created using to the centuries-old artisan technique of hand-block printing. Each block is hand carved and then carefully impressed onto the paper with hand-mixed inks. When this technique is combined with their modern designs, the result is a wallcovering that is at once both bold and organic. And when installed, the finish is absolutely stunning — it almost looks like the wall itself was carefully hand-painted. It is printed with water-based, low VOC pigment inks on acrylic-coated, sustainably-produced paper. Available in 12 designs, each with multiple colourways.
