Sansarc’s owner and founder, Shawna Ziegenbein, is the designer, photographer, and seamstress behind the entire line of Sansarc Culture custom bridal gowns, everyday fashion, home decor and accessories.
Shawna accredits her fascination with nature and design to spending most of her childhood exploring the vast pastures surrounding her family home, a landscape that first fostered her sense of aesthetic and artistic sensibilities. Her parents, aunts, grandmothers, and college mentor were all influential in her personal creative pursuits.
Fusing fibers, historical and contemporary alternative photographic processes, and found natural elements, results in an amalgamation of Shawna’s breadth of knowledge, understanding, and experience in many forms of art. The result of these various creative outlets is Sansarc Culture.
Today, all Sansarc Culture Gowns, Ready to Wear Clothing, Ritual Decor and Body Care are handcrafted in our Bend, Oregon “Talent Room. This is where the Sansarc Culture has evolved and where ideas, design, creation, shipping and marketing alchemy take place.
We are a small design studio with big dreams and an imagination inspired by the magic of life. Thank you for choosing Sansarc Culture to Elevate your Handcrafted Consciousness!
