Catherine is a knitted textile designer based on the NW coast of the Scottish Highlands. Her collection of scarves, blankets and cushions are inspired by the contrast of colours and textures found in the wild, and the interruption of human activity. She graduated in Textile Design from The Glasgow School of Art in 2018 before setting up Cove*, a small knit studio in Kylesku on the North West Coast of Scotland. From there she creates her designs, hand finishes work and has a shop which is open from April to October.
All products are knitted in Scotland using the highest quality Geelong lambswool, from farms with exceptionally high animal welfare standards. These yarns are dyed and spun in Kinross, Scotland using GOTS approved dyes. A small amount of elastic, from Italy, is used in some designs which gives a sculptural feel to those pieces. Designed in her studio in Kylesku and made in Scotland, Catherine works with a small studio who manufacture small batches on state of the art knitting machines.
