About CatkinJane

CatkinJane

Hand crafted accessories for men and women - bespoke service available

I've always sewn, having been taught by my mother and grandmother, a trained tailoress; so when I decided that the time had come to move on from my job I decided to take the opportunity to use these skills and started CatkinJane.

I spent a year or two making a variety of textile items but then found my passion - ties! The first ties were made at the request of my brother-in-law who was looking for something more interesting to wear for work than the offerings on the high street. The opinion he put forward that they 'can't be difficult to make, just a tube of fabric' was soon put right by the research into how traditional ties are correctly made - if you want to know how the ties are made you can find out at http://www.catkinjane.co.uk/how_the_ties_are_made.html

After much research on suitable fabrics I settled on using Liberty's tana lawns - with their fantastic range there is a fabric to suit almost everyone's taste, everything from their famous florals and paisleys to fun prints and from classic to modern.

I now spend my time making ties and other accessories, often for people's weddings, and love spending my time creating something useful from beautiful fabrics.

I hope you enjoy looking through the range available in the shop, if you don't see quite what you are looking for it's always worth getting in touch - I currently have over 100 Liberty designs in stock and am always happy to add more!
