Touches of old world charm, brings history, culture, and art to life. 

A passion for exploring a world of masterful pieces and bringing them into our lived space is what inspires us. We have an endless desire to travel and discover unique histories, ways of life, and design. August Sage embraces the various forms in which humanity expresses themselves as creators and makers.

It’s no secret that artisan communities around the world have faced challenges as our access to mass produced, cheap goods has increased. We want to bypass that and provide you with goods you’ll value for a lifetime, by each carefully selected artisan group 

Each piece carries with it a story spanning generations. We aim to establish positive and impactful relationships with diverse communities to bring you these special pieces that reflect the timeless qualities of each group.

Letter From the Founder


I started August Sage to share the power, and my love, of home. My self discovery and contemplation has always stemmed from my own sanctuary. Home for me offers a place to cultivate the life you want to live, supplying a rare space for personal creative expression. A space that is beautiful and inspiring will allow that artistic energy to flourish. 

I believe that if home is to be a place that promotes personal growth, the things that fill it should add value and enrich you. I want to introduce you to the work of artisans and master craftsmen who have spent their lives honing ancient techniques, and imbue your home with that sense of artistry so that it inspires you. Often we mindlessly buy trinkets and items that feel temporary even as we’re buying them. My vision for August sage is to promote a more mindful existence.

From the very beginning of your morning ritual to evenings of cooking and entertaining with friends, or peacefulness of reading a book. I created August Sage for you to enjoy your space and to provide you with the tools to live an artistic life.

With Love,
