Ooh la Lapin was established by artist and maker Lou Bush in 2011. Lou began sewing little creatures whilst living in the Rhineland in Germany as a young 20 something. Upon returning to the British Isles she devoted every spare moment to creating a little imaginary world filled with creatures, stories and curiosity.
In 2014 Lou asked illustrator and doll maker Emily Neale to join the good ship Ooh la Lapin as this small world of creatures started to grow. Emily graduated with a first in Illustration from Portsmouth University and is an invaluable part of all the happenings at Ooh la Lapin.
We both hope you enjoy looking around the site and do drop us a line if you’d like to know more!
