Founder, Creative Director and Mum of two, Sarah started her namesake brand initially as a hobby whilst COO of iomart, an AIM listed cloud computing business.
Frequently flying all over the country to oversee iomart's operations, Sarah was looking for a bag that would work hard for her from daytime meetings to evening functions.
Unsuccessful in her search for the perfect bag, Sarah learned how to design and produce handbags in her spare time and following an apprenticeship with the ex Creative Director of Mulberry came up with the idea of a bag-in-a-bag, the Dahlia Tote. This beautifully functional tote bag soon became her everyday bag and as friends and colleagues began requesting their own, the Sarah Haran brand was born.
Our Mission ...
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 Values ...
When creating her business Sarah wanted to build a foundation that would define her approach to creating something to be proud of.
Functional & Innovative
Our design process at Sarah Haran is anchored around understanding women's everyday needs, to help them feel empowered and confident, no matter what situation they are in. Therefore, every handbag is not only designed but also personally tested by Sarah for up to 6 months. During this time the design is refined and adapted until the perfect product fulfils her original vision. Only then will Sarah put her name to it.
Our collection features a "Change Up" innovation that allows you to easily change up the look of your handbag in seconds as you move from day to night or from the office to the weekend
We’re not fans of trends or fast fashion, preferring our customers to carry our bags for decades, not seasons. This is why we only use the finest leathers and hardware to create timeless handbags and accessories, all backed up by our lifetime guarantee. We source high quality full-grain leather, the strongest and most durable type that improves with age. The zips, press studs, chains and tassel fasteners that make up our hardware are twice-dipped so the plating doesn't scratch. It’s also made from quality, weighty materials that translate into fine finished goods
Our lovely customers are at the heart of our business and nothing makes us happier than knowing our bags have helped make a positive impact on their lives. We pride ourselves on consistently delivering 5 star service and really listening to what our feedback our customers have in order to better our product offering. We encourage our customers to talk to engage with us as much as possible so we can continue to create 'life-changing' handbags.
It is highly important to us as a business to support the community and help where we can. We support Smart Works who provide high quality interview clothes and interview training to unemployed women. We are also active supporters of the Peter Jones Foundation, supporting the younger generation through their educational initiatives. We also support a number of local charities including the Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice.
At Sarah Haran, our approach to running a responsible business is simple - we look after our people, our environment and do what we can to reduce our carbon footprint. As a company, we take extra care to ensure all suppliers we work with match our standards, and consistently uphold them to meet our expectations. We work carefully to reduce our carbon footprint and are very conscious and respective of our surrounding environmental factors.
The Sarah Haran brand designs and produces luxury functional handbags that last a lifetime. We do not advocate following trends or fast fashion but focus on longevity and quality. It is therefore vital that our craftsmanship including all our materials do not sacrifice the brand's commitment to sustainability or welfare. Under the guidance of Sarah, our production teams continually seek to add innovation to our product range. We believe in function over form, so any designs must meet our strict criteria around solving a problem for our customers.
