”Based on the South London/Surrey border, Kate designs a range of patterns for fabric, which she also uses to illustrate a selection of complementary products. Kate has been striving for some time to ensure that all items are UK made, and all of her new products now achieve this aim. Fabrics and mugs are printed in the UK by small companies, while Kate makes all other products herself from her studio.
Whether you’re looking for unique, mid-century inspired fabrics for your next project; a limited edition product as a gift or to add a jolt of colour to your home; or even to commission a one off item; Kate can help and provides a fast, friendly service.”

Memories of the 80’s and 90’s tie dye may be a thing of the past, but now tie dye is back in a new modern way. Gone is the rainbow of colours and in is a more monochrome simple colour pallette.
It’s very easy to get the look yourself on pillow cases, tea towels and napkins, with a few essentials. And it’s fun!
