A very warm welcome to Léonie who creates wonderful designs for her textiles and does fabulous illustrations – she is another one of the fantastic #incredibleindependents who I have been celebrating. Here she shares more about her amazing business.

1) Why did you start your business? I started my business because I have this innate need to SHARE, share my experiences, share the way I see the world, share the beauty I see around me. Whether it’s a photo, illustration, writing a blog, or making a product. 2) What do you love about running your own independent business? Having creative control!!

3) What is your favourite product or service and why? Ahhh such a hard question and I’m currently thinking about expanding my range… I think the newest products I do will always be my favourite! Currently my newest product for sale is a velvet backed cactus cushion with embroidered flowers because I love the tactility of it. I’m also just about to put up my first illustration for sale so I’m very excited about that! 4) Let’s spread the indie love, name some other independent businesses you support. @zabbyallen – Zabby is brilliant! And her newest venture @theprocrastinationpaper is such a fab idea to get us to be more creative away from our screens @sketchappeal – encouraging everyone to get in touch with their inner artist “for the love of sketch!” @yukfunwow – funny, adorable & quirky clothing and prints

5) Which is your favourite social media platform and why? Instagram! I’m all about about the pictures…

A big thank you to Léonie for taking part and sharing more about her wonderful business. I just love her bright bold prints on her textiles! Do go and check her stuff out over on Instagram or her website. Please continue to support your #incredibleindependents by using this hashtag. I love to hear all about the wonderful independent businesses out there!
