Leah Duncan’s brand started with a dream and an Etsy shop in 2008, the success of which quickly led to collaborations with companies such as Schoolhouse Electric, Urban Outfitters, O’Neill, Galison, Hallmark and Target, as well as fabric collections with Cloud9 Fabrics.
Rooted in a desire to contribute to her community and keep her goods earth-friendly, Duncan decided to produce her collection locally, with many designs—from posters to pillows and note cards to scarves—being made in her studio by hand. Each piece in Duncan’s collection is hand-drawn and reflects her love of soft color palettes. Inspired by nature and the Southwest, Duncan has established a spot in Austin’s artisanal community and a voice that embodies simplicity and beauty with quirky and organic themes.
Photographed here is a linen tea towel with Duncan’s meadow design. It features whimsical florals, showing off Duncan’s sophisticated pattern work and unique take on textile design. The towel was screen printed by Austin’s Industry Print Shop on 100 percent linen, which softens over time, making it perfect for kitchens, bathrooms or to display on the wall.
