Leibermuster, a six-color camouflage pattern

Leibermuster is a six-color military camouflage pattern developed by the German military in February 1945. It was the last of a family of German World War II camouflage patterns. Known in German as "Buntfarbenaufdruck 45" ('Multi-colour print pattern 45')[citation needed] for its year of introduction, Leibermuster (named after the brothers Leiber, the pattern's creators) was issued on a very limited basis to combat units before the war ended. It was the first pattern issued to both regular army (Wehrmacht), and Waffen-SS units. The pattern consists of black, brown, olive, pale green, white, and red.

Reproduction Leibermuster uniforms, created for collectors and reenactors, have become available on the market through European vendors.[1] Reproductions are made in China and Turkey.
