Katie is a designer maker based in Staffordshire who graduated with a 1st Class Ba(Hons) in Textile Design.
She makes luxurious products crafted by hand using quality yarns. All items are individually made using hand powered knitting machines in her home studio.
Knitting is Katie’s specialist area, her designs are originally inspired by mushrooms. She focuses on texture, making the fabrics tactile.
The products make a lovely indulgence for yourself or a lovely gift for someone special in your life.
