Atefeh & Niloo
FOUNDERS OF TWO LEAVES STUDIO
We are Atefeh and Niloofar and we are two Iranian artists, printmakers and pattern lovers based in Manchester. We were introduced by a mutual friend in August 2021 and had no idea we would go on to start a business together! We became friends initially and over time we realised how much we have in common – now we are both good friends and business partners.
We are the founders of Two Leaves Studio. Everything we create at Two Leaves is 100% handmade – we even make the stamps we use to print our designs onto fabric. We then use these hand-printed fabrics to dream up and sew together gorgeous bespoke items such as cushions, wall art and bags.
We are inspired by our love of nature and traditional Iranian design. We called our business Two Leaves because we are 2 people with a passion for nature and the organic fabric and water based ink we use are eco-friendly. We put our hearts and souls into our work and it makes us happy when people love what we create!
