Hello, my name is Katie. I want to share with you the journey of Country Kate and what my company is all about. Since a young age I have always had a keen eye for arts and crafts, being inspired by my Nan and Mom and their talent for creating handmade items. I found that I too had a skill for making such items and decided to take my passion for doing so further and studied textiles, art & design at A level.
A few years later I moved into my little country cottage, this ignited my passion again and I decided to tackle the furnishing of it myself. As the cottage started to feel like home I didn’t want to leave my beloved dogs out, so started to make dog accessories, like bandanas and treat bags as well as collars, leads & bow ties.
Over a number of years, I have progressed my range of products and my enthusiasm continued to grow, and with the encouragement of friends and family Country Kate was born.
Over the last 4 years I have been further inspired by the beautiful part of the UK I live and as a born and bred country girl, many of the items that I now create have a countryside theme.
I am also using a number of material designers to influence my creations and offer a wide range of materials. Country Kate is developing all the time and I love to get out and about at the country shows; if you would like to come and me keep an eye on our events page where you will find all our upcoming outings.
I inspire to create you a hand- crafted items, made to order, however many of the items I create are bespoke pieces so if you would like something a little different that you can’t quite find please get in touch and I will do my best to help.
Thank you for taking to time to read my journey.
Love Katie x
