Sarah Mimo of Sarah Mimo Manufactory designs and produces home accessories – wall clocks, ceiling mobiles and sculptures. All her products are laser cut from birch wood and finished using eco-friendly stains and varnish.
All Sarah Mimo Manufactory products are designed and produced in Chicago, Illinois. She uses only the highest quality birch plywood for its strength and warp-resistant qualities, and each piece is laser cut for precision and consistency. The stains used are a custom blend made with an eco-friendly acrylic base and light-fast pigments that won’t fade over time. The finish used is a high-quality zero VOC varnish that’s an earth-friendly and safe alternative to traditional wood finishing products. Sarah is always updating her production methods to make her creations as environmentally friendly as possible.

Sarah Mimo Manufactory grew out of a side project in 2011. At the time, founder and creator Sarah Mimo was living in Brooklyn, NY and working as a freelance graphic designer at a textile company. She started making clocks just for fun, and never thought she’d still be making them years later… or that they’d become her full time job.
Sarah is incredibly grateful that a dream she was willing to entertain has become her livelihood, and her sincerest thanks is for the people who go out of their way to support her and other small businesses and artists.
