Sabine Spare is a Toronto-based designer, maker and materials enthusiast. Since completing a BDes in Material Art & Design from OCAD University in 2013, with a focus in Fibre, Spare has worked as a freelance costume-maker and designer.

Within the realm of textiles and fashion, she has had the opportunity to be a part of a variety of exciting collaborative and solo-projects. Her interest in both ancient textile techniques, in addition to cutting edge technologies, have inspired her to travel to remote villages in Central America and major cities in Europe alike. 

Compelled to push boundaries, Spare's practices of making, exploring, researching, collaborating, and dreaming always circle back to the textile. Above all else she believes in inadvertent sustainability through innovation. 

Currently, Sabine's main focus is her debut line of hand-dyed and marbled clothing and accessories for Spare Label. The collection, 'Igneous & Id', launches Spring 2017. To learn more visit:
