story


Hello and welcome! I’m Laura and I’m the Glasgow-based designer and artist behind Blue Ranchu Designs.

A classically trained musician, I left my career in music and events to retrain in Graphic Design. Having always been a creative and artistic person, I decided to turn my passion for craft and design into a full-time business.

I design and create a range of beautiful and fun home accessories, stationery and apparel. My signature designs are bold, colourful and engaging. I'm inspired by my love of nature and animals. And I love dogs! Especially Dachshunds! 

My designs start out as sketches and drawings which I then finish digitally.  I make many of my products by hand in my studio and I also work with a handful of Scottish and UK based manufacturers. I pride myself on being able to produce beautiful products to a very high standard. This also means I can create one-off designs and commissions for that extra special gift.

I hand screen print my own fabric range of items, including tshirts for all ages, baby clothes, tote bags and cushions, using 100% solvent free and eco-friendly inks.

Thank you for visiting and enjoy shopping with Blue Ranchu!
