Catherine Tough graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1999, with the vision of turning heritage craft into playful, modern pieces that are a pleasure to wear and use. Inspired by nature, travel and colour, she and her team continue to make products to cherish.
Now we are one of the UK’s leading designer makers; our products are found in many of the finest stores around the UK and the rest of the World. Our lovely patterned socks, woollen hats and scarves, lavender door stops, cushions and throws are widely coveted, and we're expanding our range all the time.
Catherine's passion for textiles began when she was still at school, inspired by her mum's knitting skills (there was often a fleece in the lounge, a spinning wheel and lots of projects on the go) and, as a child of the 80’s, religiously watching The Clothes Show. She went on to study textiles at the Royal College of Art where she developed her signature style of bold, playful designs using beautiful materials.
Catherine and her dedicated team handcraft beautiful quality products for you and your home from the finest natural materials. By fusing traditional craft practices with contemporary, elegant design, we lovingly create pieces that you'll treasure.
