Catherine Sinclair is a textile artist based in Edinburgh. Her work has a narrative quality inspired by holiday memories and the special items that people like to collect. She explains, “I’m fascinated by people’s relationship with the objects they intentionally collect such as stamps, feathers, football stickers and autographs and the pleasure gained from having those items safely stored or displayed.”

Scottish Textile Designer Catriona McLaughlin makes beautiful and unique handmade Knitwear Accessories from Merino lambswool, cashmere and other luxurious natural fibres.
My work is based on hand and jacquard woven fabrics that can be used for lighting, screens, blinds, and other interior applications. My textile passion lies in woven interior textiles and in the experimental manipulation of structures and geometric patterns. I love to combine traditional and modern weaving techniques to create three-dimensional innovative fabrics.
The work I create is textile craft based within a specialist area of embroidery; I place myself under the category of a designer maker as I enjoy producing crafts, which can be worn and indulged by clients. I produce crafts, which are easy on the eye and people can relate to such as the concepts on real world values.
