In the spring of 2016 Leonie enrolled in sewing classes to revisit an old hobby while also gaining more experience sewing with a machine. Later that same year she enrolled in a Children’s Yoga Teacher program and fell in love with the Restorative Yoga portion of the class. She sewed eye pillows for each of her classmates and was surprised by the interest she received from them. She started selling her eye pillows that fall and by the end of the year, she had already sold more than 50 eye pillows.
Justin’s love of photography and tech was the perfect complement to the Leonie Lemon vision! After a few months of sending customers picture texts of products, Leonie thought it was only a matter of time to create something more official, like a website! Since Leonie was not much of a tech person (she spent her early childhood years thinking everyone had only 8 channels on TV!), she asked Justin if he could take some fancy photos and collaborate on a website. The website and photography are a combination of Justin’s very detailed eye and Leonie’s vision to create something clean and minimal.
Leonie Lemon is the lovechild of husband and wife, Justin and Leonie. Leonie Lemon’s focus is enhancing the self-care experience with the use of hand-sewn relaxation tools. Leonie is the seamstress and designer while Justin is the creative behind the camera and all things tech related. While remaining focused on relaxation tools, Leonie Lemon has since expanded their offerings to include products that encourage the reduction of waste as well as living more sustainable and clean lives. As they continue down the journey toward living minimal and more fulfilling lives, they hope to inspire others to live with more intention.
