Katie Mawson set up her business in 1991 after graduating from Camberwell Art School in London, UK with a degree in textile design. Katie’s work evolved and changed over the years. She started with hand-knitted jumpers and went on to create a children’s wear collection, before perfecting her range of felted accessories and special cushions and throws.
Katie Mawson is a small, established designer knitwear company, run by Katie and her husband Chris, designing and making special knitted, felted accessories from their garden studio in the Lake District.
Everything, including their knitted ladies hats, scarves and gloves, is carefully handmade by themselves with the help of their 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.
At Katie Mawson, they think the key to their continuing success is their hands-on approach and passion for designer knitwear fashion, as well as attention to detail, and commitment to knitwear quality.
