Our Partnership with Sarah Angst Art in Bozeman, Montana
Posted on February 01 2021
Sauce joins Sarah Angst Art! Two creative, Canadian, entrepreneurs team up to offer beautiful functional hats and headbands to keep you warm this winter and beyond.
Sarah Angst grew up in Winnipeg, Canada and attended the University of Minnesota - Duluth for college. In 2007 she moved with her husband to Bozeman, Montana where she took the plunge to become a full-time artist.
Sarah has always loved creating art - ever since she was a little girl. "Putting elements together until they look and feel just right is very rewarding." Sarah Angst cards began in 2011 with a decision to create affordable reproductions of her bright & bold, hand painted linocuts. Customers were so drawn to her beautiful imagery that greeting cards seemed like the perfect medium to share her art with a vast audience.
Sauce was founded by a former Canadian national team cross country skier as a way to support her ski racing. Sauce founder, Shayla Swanson, was frustrated with traditional winter headwear that she found to be too hot, too itchy & too ugly. An avid sewer, Shayla set out to create functional, stylish and comfortable products that met the needs of elite athletes and outdoor enthusiasts alike.
Sauce started as a hobby for Shayla in the early 2000's while she was ski racing, but when she retired from ski racing in 2010, Sauce quickly turned into an apparel company that’s sold in hundreds of retail locations across North America and worn by countless teams & clubs in sports of all kinds. With a passion for creating beautiful, high quality, and thoughtful products that help people maintain healthy lifestyles, Sauce is also committed to keeping things local and domestic. Both Sauce and Sarah Angst Art are incredibly proud that their products are all printed and created right here in the U.S.A.
Shayla and Sarah met over 7 years ago in a business incubator group where they were both hoping to learn new ways to grow their perspective companies. The two Canadians bonded over their similar experiences in migrating to Bozeman, Montana and hoped their business paths might cross again down the road.
A year ago, Shayla reached out to Sarah about reproducing some of her images on hats and headbands and a new partnership was born. Four of Sarah’s designs were made into comfortable, high performance, and beautiful wearable works of art. The designs sold like hot cakes in 2020, especially the prints representing local mountain ranges. Shayla and Sarah are hoping to add more imagery to their partnership line in the coming months so stay tuned at www.sauceactive.com and www.sarahangstart.com for what’s new!
Sauce and Sarah Angst Art have found a great partnership where they can offer a fun, new, attractive, and functional product that so many can wear and enjoy. It has been such a treat to see our partnership products worn by kids on the way to school, on people out for a run or ski, or for sale at a local outdoor shop. Get your own today!!!
