A mad love of vintage fabrics and their patterns, textures and colours lead Sarah Ottewell to begin her company, SLO, in 2006. Her goal is to use extra, unwanted and second-hand fabrics to make functional, useful, everyday products and accessories. Each item is made by hand in her Hamilton, Ontario studio, using reclaimed fabrics when possible.

She is a lover of foodstuffs, a vintage fabric accumulator, obsessive quilt maker, and serial crocheter. And aims to be never not sewing.
