About Tinturu

Tinturu is a Berlin based label which was founded by me, Lihie Jacob, a children’s book illustrator and lover of all things hand painted. The first pillow I made was a giant dog portrait for my friend’s birthday. When her son was born, I wanted to make him a gift that incorporated my illustration style and would be one of a kind. 

 

This is how Tinturu was conceptualized.

 

The items you can order here are the only ones of their kind (except the prints, obviously!) and I hand paint each one with love and care. I strive to use the best materials, both eco-friendly and high quality. The colors are luminous and should not fade for many decades yet. I hope you find joy in my paintings and that you find something you can give or keep forever.
