Mini Textile Gifts from Catherine Tough

Today’s mini gifts from Catherine Tough see the application of a modern aesthetic to craft and tradition to create simple, elegant products. Inspired by nature, travel and a will to ‘make it new’, Catherine graduated from the Royal College of Art with a vision of turning heritage crafts into modern design. The result is a collection of “homeware, gifts and knitted goodness”. The jacquard knits use fine lambswool yarns, which are washed and felted to a soft, luxurious finish, before being turned into a delightful array of gift products. My pick from the collection is a set of lavender-scented mini gifts; a collection of birds, animals and hearts that will brighten any home.
