Deriving inspiration from the stunning Lakeland countryside Katie Mawson creates hats scarves and bags from soft felted Lambswool.
Katie Mawson is a small, established designer knitwear company, run by Katie and Chris, designing and making special knitted, felted accessories from our garden studio in the Lake District.
Everything, including our knitted ladies hats, scarves and gloves, is carefully made by ourselves, with the help of our knitters Kerry and Norman. Katie carefully hand finishes every piece, felting them for extra softness, hand stitching, and labelling them as genuinely made in England. We also take care of packing and posting items to our customers in the UK, USA, Australia, Canada, South Africa and beyond, together with all before and after sales support.
We think the key to our continuing success is our hands-on approach and passion for designer knitwear fashion, as well as our attention to detail, and commitment to knitwear quality.
Katie set up her business in 1991 after graduating from Camberwell Art School with a degree in textile design.
She started out from an old railway arch near Brixton. Before moving to the more spacious Clockwork Studios in Camberwell. Originally home to Fred Karno’s Fun Factory in the early 1900’s, featuring Stan Laurel and Charlie Chaplin.
Katie’s husband, Chris, joined the business in 2000, and shortly thereafter they moved to the Lake District. Where they continue to develop and expand their range.
