Esther Sandler is a freelance textile designer, craft artist and illustrator based in Melbourne, Australia.

With a background in fashion and printed textiles, she aims to create unique patterns that mix together contrasting elements including flora and fauna, traditional textile motifs and abstract geometric shapes. Her work tends to have a signature hand painted look with bold and joyful use of colour.

Esther creates textile based products under the label Togetherness and have previously hosted the podcast Wowee! Podcast with fellow designer Penny Min Ferguson, as well as teaching into the Bachelor of Textiles (Design) program at RMIT University.

Always keen to work with new clients, Esther is available for textile design, craft & illustration work. For freelance opportunities, commissions, collaborations or other enquiries please email Esther through the contact page.
