It's me! I'm Sara Tamez, the Tamest Rebel. While I am fortunate enough to have part-time assistance, Tamest Rebel is largely a one woman shop as I am the designer, maker, accountant, buyer, customer service, etc. Like a tale as old as time, I started out working in a completely different field after receiving my B.S. in Environmental Science from Purdue University. My background in environmental science ROOTED my deep love for environmental sustainability and subsequently I have worked hard at personal growth and understanding our heavily imbalanced societal structure over my years as a business owner, resulting in a deep passion for social justice and intersectional feminism.
I created No Kitchen Sink in 2014 when I realized I have been making things, in some form or another, my entire life and it was my fucking favorite thing to do ever in this wurld. In 2019, by sheer planetary alignment that transcended time and space, I was chatting with a friend about societal expectations, social media, etc. and referred to myself as "the tamest rebel". Admittedly ~*CHEESY*~ but in that exact moment I knew it was time for a change within my business and became Tamest Rebel in October 2019. My aim as I design is to create pieces that feel empowering, and that I fucking love. Thanks for visiting or following along on this journey that I still question my own sanity for embarking on. ♥
