sipping sun exists on a foundation of values—the first being transparency. We pride ourselves in being transparent about the products & services we offer.
Whenever and wherever possible, we divulge the origin of our materials, give credit to companies and persons where it’s due, disclose affiliations, and highlight the individuals responsible for helping us make our designs & dreams a reality.
As we grow, we vow to maintain our transparency values every step of the way.
Nurturing the trust that we earn with our readers, collaborators, and patrons is our highest priority at sipping sun.
While our business is small, we don’t think small. We think BIG. We believe in sharing our purpose, our mission, and our hearts with you.
In order for us to be effective communicators and to provide the highest quality offerings, being open and honest—about what we’re doing & why—is where we gain the influence and momentum to do what we do.
Sustainability is the through-line that strings together all of our values.
Outside of our planet-friendly packaging, recyclable materials, and up-cycled treasures, we pursue every creative project with immense passion. We believe that passion is the most sustainable resource, second to love.
If a concept or idea doesn’t feel expansive & invigorating—we conserve our resources, making a conscious pivot towards joy.
We employ enthusiasm to develop our gifts, expand our potential, and foster our inspiration through heart-centered habits and rituals. We have firm boundaries with our time, our energy, and our expectations—thanks to our shared clarity in our goals & priorities.
At sipping sun, we are privileged to offer beautiful, hands·made artwork produced in home studios & gardens, from our patios and dining rooms, or shared community work spaces. Our mission is working with skilled artists & craftswomen across cultures to manifest our deep, global connectedness through tangible objects.
sipping sun is more than a studio—it’s a lifestyle. What this means for our artists and our collaborators, is that we’re not interested in producing more stuff.
Instead, we believe in creating one-of-a-kind decorative, functional, and wearable art pieces that develop & nurture our relationships with the cultures of our planet through stories & ancient craftsmanship techniques infused with intention for a sustainable future, together.
Our definition of authenticity describes the relationship between our artists and the tools and methods used to create our products.
Using traditional and ancient techniques, we are proud to present beautiful, quality goods that reflect the personalities of the makers & the spirit of every object’s origin. Woven into the fabric of our company is genuine reverence for all sacred practices, cultural traditions, and spiritual development.
sipping sun does not exist without the people who believe in maintaining a thriving & sustainable culture-centric lifestyle studio—virtual or otherwise. We are committed to infusing our projects with the soul expression of each artist. This means truly harnessing the essence of the individual behind sipping sun’s designs, creation processes, and brand experience.
As a high sensory person, Meryn Sibel positioned sipping sun as a lifestyle mantra that honors her unique energetic frequency. Working within the parameters of a 9-5 schedule interfered with her intuitive, and often chaotic creative process. Rather than confining her productivity to standard business hours of the day, she redefined “productivity” and “standard” for herself.
Embedded in our ethos of transparency, sustainability, and authenticity is the careful intentionality that we equate with quality.
Not only do we aspire to deliver the highest quality goods & services under our studio brand, we also encourage the same intentionality to be applied throughout our individual lives.
We believe that quality is not only something designated for our crafts and what we can offer others, but that each of us deserves to reap the benefits of living a quality life, full of beauty, warmth, love, and kindness.
Without being highly intentional, having an eye for detail or a discernment for quality in our lives as a whole, then pursuing quality in our crafts becomes finite and fragile.
At sipping sun, every artist is seen as a whole person, who is valued far beyond their output.
When every direction and facet of a person’s life is thriving and cared for, it becomes inevitable that they’ll be able to produce quality work in their gifted medium. Then it becomes joyous to create and the unnecessary strain and hassle of productivity become mitigated.
sipping sun is a small batch Lifestyl𝑒 STUDIO that celebrates the feminine energetic & intuitive flow of creation.
We believe that it takes time to create quality artwork. It’s a process—one that cannot be rushed. So, objects and projects found at sipping sun are the finest expression of slow living.
Inside L𝑒 STUDIO, we cherish the ancient, traditional, and sustainable methods of creation alongside present-day functionality and cultural values.
When you invest in quality goods, you are investing in a future of freedom. Freedom from constantly replacing garments, freedom from the incessant nagging of fast-fashion—we envision a better future in which artists are thriving and their crafts aren’t taken for granted.
At sipping sun, we like to keep things simple.
We don’t believe in hustling, nor do we subscribe to the overhwelming concept of “the daily grind”. Constantly working to the point of burnout just doesn’t vibe with us. In the words of Maisie Hill, “We do epic shit without burning out.”
As artists & creators, we love getting caught up in the details. It’s breaking things down to their bones and getting to know the essence of every material that supplies the air in which we breathe into our artwork.
We’re not numbers on the production line, but partners, parents to children & pets, involved in our communities, and stewards of the earth. Our livelihood expands beyond our products—our products are a result of us actually living.
When we choose to work with an artist or a company, we seek to feel at ease & expansive by our collaboration. sipping sun’s goal is to offer high-quality, hand-crafted goods that both ground & elevate our customers’ sacred spaces and personal aesthetics.
Using natural, organic materials combined with skilled artisans joyous in their crafts, we are passionate about creating opportunities for women artists to thrive on their artwork. For us, it really is that simple.
sipping sun was founded on the desire to live intuitively and heal in every direction. In order to achieve our goal, we have made it a non-negotiable pursuit to slow waaay down and simplify how we operate in the studio and at home.
