About

Hello, I'm Karin Leutscher, owner and creative director of studio Laleu Design Amsterdam since 2013.
In my studio I create exclusive artwork for the fashion and homeware market. 
As a freelance textile print and graphic designer I develop a unique hand-drawn and digital
collection of commercial & contemporary textiles.

Since childhood I have a strong love for drawing, painting & of course pattern! Away from my studio and family you could find me vintage textile hunting, trend spotting, visiting a museum or gallery, sketching in botanical gardens, reading a book or playing the flute. I love to combine handdrawn with digital design and like to experiment with all kinds of medium and techniques. Coming from a graphic design background it's an asset to work in the world of textiledesign. Bringing my designs to life, playing with and understanding colour & composition. I use my technical skills to create seamless repeating tiles and for printing and prepress processes. Laleu Design can assist with any kind of artwork you may need.


Studio Laleu Design will love to work with you.
