‘A flower blossoms for its own joy’ – Oscar Wilde
Sésam is based in Melbourne, Australia.
Sésam’s founder, Kirsten Sugden, who also has a background as an environmental lawyer, was inspired to combine the highest quality and craftsmanship, with a strong environmental ethos, to create everyday versatile pieces that would be uplifting and spark a sense of joy.
After launching in July 2020 we have been featured in publications including Vogue, Stella Magazine, Town&Country and 5Eleven magazine.
Our supply chain is backed by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certification and the Seri.co certification.
This means our scarves are made in a way that respects the environment as well as the rights of every person involved in production. Our tissue paper is also certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, meaning it has been sourced from sustainably farmed forests. You can read more about these certifications on our Sésam World page.
