Let us introduce ourselves. We are Lisa Savage and Johanna Leestma La Fleur. We are designers, entrepreneurs and enthusiastic observers of things beautiful, clever and original. We’re also the team behind the shop EQUIPE.design. We love to travel, make art, cook, spark ideas, garden, sew and cycle. Oh, and Johanna’s a juggler (for real).
Why EQUIPE? Pronounced the French way, EQUIPE (ay-keep) means “team”. And that’s what we’re seeding and celebrating here: creative teamwork that will knock your socks off. Here you’ll also visit destinations that have inspired us and sample things we and our cohorts are making and plotting.
This is our first blog, though not our first effort as business & design instigators. Johanna has helped create businesses and brands for clients and started up one or two of her own. Lisa is a Phd biologist who is a lifelong creator of art and sewn goods. Together we have produced events, developed DIY projects and lately, turned our passion for travel, textiles and design into EQUIPE Dispatches.
