Kim’s love of textiles was inspired by her grandmother who created beautiful garments. A belief of ‘waste not, want not’ after the clothes rationing of WWII led to many of the fabrics she used being upcycled, an ethic Kim incorporates today in many of her pieces.
An Honours degree in woven and knitted textiles from the Scottish College of Textiles led to Kim designing and manufacturing her own knitwear range, followed by a career in education. Kim has now returned to her great love of fabrics, creating a range of one-off neckwraps using a collection of luxurious textiles, including some of Steve Wilson’s signature cashmere weaves. These neckwraps are lined in the softest fleece, fastening with a beautiful handmade or vintage button.
