Who We Are *
Leuie is nestled within the neighbourhood of South Granville, amongst a variety of art and furniture galleries, restaurants and cafés, as well as fashion boutiques. Built on a foundation and adoration for the beautiful capsule of time that is childhood, the little shop has been filled with ever changing pieces that we believe in, and created with a dollop of imagination.
Leuie has had the immense privilege of being shared about within a range of widely read and enjoyed publications worldwide, (both online + print) including Rue Magazine, Vogue Magazine UK, Montecristo Magazine, Mother Muse Magazine, as well as This is Glamorous.
And within its walls, visitors will discover a carefully curated range of European-made childrenswear, homeware and toys—from buttery Italian leather shoes and Spanish-made fashions, to wonderfully crafted toys that have been handmade in Germany. Exclusive brands that, though are not widely distributed within North America, are appreciated for their continuous quality of design and craftsmanship.
Owners Jacquelyn and Sarah Klassen are a mother-daughter team that, with joint design sensibilities, have brought together the “Leuie” look and feel of the shop with an easy balance between their two ideals and European heritage. The result is textural moulding work and an array of timeless and beautifully aged antique furnishings collected over time—lending to a quaint and cozy space that is approachable and comfortable to browse through.
