Fighe are a heritage wool craft venture based in the Highlands of Scotland. Joanna George from Ardnamurchan trained in design at Glasgow school of Art and later took a Masters in Performance Sportswear design. After a career in this field she decided to focus on her love of the outdoors and natural fibres and now works mainly with wool crafts. Chris Taylor from Loch Carron works with Joanna at Fighe and enjoys handcrafting wooden craft equipment which is used at the workshops and also for sale. Chris also takes commission for knitted woollen rugs or pillows.
