Butler/Lindgård is a Swedish design studio specializing in textile design. The duo consists of Hanna Butler and Karin Olu Lindgård, both with B.A.’s in textile design from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts School of Design in Copenhagen.


Our works commonly emerge out of an analog sketch process where we collaborate close to each other, with materials in hand. Creative moments are sparked by an unexpected issue or a comic observation. The two of us normally work in close proximity, in a nearly symbiotic state where “mine and yours” is blurred and replaced with “we”. We draw and paint on the same paper, alternately or simultaneously, while maintaining a continuous and reflective conversation regarding colors, rhythms, and tones. Authenticity, sensuousness, and presence of the human hand are all important guidelines in our work, and this might be why it appeals to both the body and the mind.


The work of Butler/Lindgård is not exclusively in fiber form, but always emerges from a textile point of view.
