Bettina Kilgus is a pattern designer enthusiastic for all things made of textile and paper.

She loves simple, contemporary and unprentitous patterns making your everyday life more beautiful. Her inspiration comes from nature, architecture, art and crafts.


If you open your eyes, you can find inspiration everywhere


Bettina pursues her designs with a structured while agile approach. Starting point are simple sketches, mood-boards and first color ideas. Basic pattern designs are kept in black-white composition to stay focused on pattern layouts. Finally, these are completed with a well-chosen and balanced blend of colors.


Bettina loves to see her designs on responsible, sustainable and fair produced goods.


New projects and collaborations are highly welcome.
