About me, meet the maker

Hello and welcome to The Hope Tree!

My name is Sara and I am the person behind every single purse and bag you can find on the website.  Originally from Spain, I now call Christchurch, New Zealand home.

My first creative love was painting but after the 2011 earthquakes in Christchurch I needed another outlet and began sewing.  My easy way to destress evolved into my fulltime passion.  I feel so fortunate that I am now able to do something I truly love and that allows me to deliver luxurious products.  

Merino leather, local to New Zealand is The Hope Trees signature leather.  It is to be admired, treasured and, more importantly, enjoyed.  Every day I feel privileged to be able to create completely unique and beautiful items that are enjoyed by customers worldwide.
