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.
Cherish is passionate about antique furniture, restoring forgotten pieces with traditional methods and materials, in a way that suits the present living environment.
My work is crafted by hand as each piece is delicately cut. Each piece has been inspired by nature and has then evolved into a contemporary piece through use use of lighting, layering and sculpture.

Sea tree crafts is a creative venture seeking to make use of flotsam cast up on the beaches of Argyll - in particular, driftwood, metal items, polished stones - and creating with clay and glazes that reflect the beauty of the area.
turquoise tangerine knitted products are designed to be fun, functional but with a slightly ambiguous nature. The present quirky collection is inspired by a fascination with simple patterns and graphic forms. Colours are abundant and shoes, cars, women in dresses, arrows, and much more, all race about the surface of the soft furnishings. Cubes and cushions of varying sizes and dimensions can be played with, sat on or just admired. All products are presently made with knitted lambswool which has been felted for added strength and durability, but yet retains a soft and tactile quality.
I combine traditional knitting techniques with a well-shaped, tailored silhouette to create an extremely comfortable but undoubtably sexy women's wear collection. My fabrics are made of the finest yarns of silk, alpaca, wool and cotton and each garment is finished by hand to ensure the highest quality.
