“Have nothing around you that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful” (William Morris)

Catherine Sothern has lived her life on this ethos. With a background in Interior Design moving into fabric design, Catherine takes her inspiration from nature itself, using what it provides to create beautiful pieces which are hand dyed and printed.

“My new collections of 100% silk and superfine merino scarves are dyed and printed with the native leaves found here in Ireland giving them soft calming colours with amazing prints, a place to rest your eye, bring soft feel to your skin and add a bit of beauty and colour to your life.”
