Little Carousel is a children's illustration and design led business created by me - Colleen Larmour. I draw, make and sew.
Having studied at Art School for five years I have had two children's picture books published and gone on to illustrate for multiple commissions.
Then the birth of my first daughter in 2013 gave me a new passion and inspiration for designing and making products for children. After creating designs for our home and friends for a couple of years the idea of Little Carousel was gradually formed and I opened in late 2016.
Fun, colour, character and playfulness are at the heart of what I do. I find fresh inspiration in nature, pattern and design, my huge passion for books and in daily life spent with my two beautiful daughters Rose and Nina and my equally creative husband Glenn.
I illustrate, design and make everything from my small home studio in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The fabrics are printed by a UK based printer and everything is then hand sewn and parcelled up by me before being shipped to lovely customers.
My designs are not gender or age specific as I believe all colour and fun should be for everyone. The young and the young at heart.
