catherine tough knitware

We are back once again to feature one of our amazingly new suppliers called Catherine Tough.  We like how wonderfully creative and colourful Catherine Tough’s knitwear is and we are proud to have their products in our store!

Catherine and her team’s origin story began 13 years ago where her passion for textiles started way back at school and passed down by he mum’s own knitting skills and Youtube (more specifically Clothes Show TV). She then developed her skills and her own unique style at the Royal College of Art. She has a very English sense of style and the surroundings of Hackney (where Catherine and her family live) inspire her work for her to produce a bold and beautiful designs.

Catherine does a whole cavalcade of neat knitwear including woollen hats, scarves, cushions and  throws, but what we have available are her very quirky Kids Yellow Elephant Lambswool Scarf,  and a selection of men’s and women’s socks named after other cute animals, such as these Women’s Lambswool Owl Socks and Men’s Red Fox Bamboo Socks..majestic!

These are some very colourful and amazing eco-gifts, we recommend you take good care of them by machine washing them on a gentle wool cycle no higher than 30C or hand washing.  For more organic knitwear from Catherine Tough, visit our online store by clicking the top right link on this page, and search ‘Catherine Tough’ by using our search bar.
