What We’re Made Of
Eco-conscious manufacturing aligns not only with what we believe to be our responsibility as a brand but with our core philosophy as creators. To take something and transform it entirely, making meaning and a difference in the process. For this reason, SABBA Designs takes every possible action to ensure that the value that our products add does not come at the price of our environment. As a reflection of our sustainable ethos, SABBA Designs chooses to use recycled, certified or biodegradable materials while avoiding the unnecessary use of chemicals in our printed-to-order and European-based manufacturing processes, reducing excess waste and our carbon footprint as a brand.
All products are designed in Switzerland and produced in neighboring European countries.
We work with reputable and carefully selected European manufacturers with incredible craftsmanship to create our collections of home accessories, art prints, textiles, and wallpapers.
Each product is carefully curated and authentic with specific attention to detail and sustainability. We want you to feel good about investing in our designs, so we try to make it easy for you.
