I’m Cath and I run Katie Rose Sews from our family home here in Sheffield, right on the edge of the gorgeously lumpy outdoors of the Peak District. Being out in nature makes my heart sing and caring for our planet is really important to me, and to my family.
I use sustainably harvested cork as a natural, plant-based leather-alternative to make key fobs, passport covers, wallets and other practical accessories. Cork is wipe-clean, water-resistant, stain-resistant, lightweight, durable, flexible, anti-fungal, hypoallergenic and vegan. It ticks a lot of boxes!
