Lovely Linen

Circle of Designers works with a wonderful linen mill in Europe who has the ability to produce high quality digitally printed cloth. We have had the pleasure of collaborating with the award winning Milliner Catherine Kelly. Catherine runs a couture millinery store called Embellish Atelier where you can find everything beautiful to do with hats. The space is dedicated to supplying and facilitating workshops for traditional hat making and other related crafts. Aprons are worn by the team with the fun ‘Mum of Many Hats’ slogan and illustrated by Meg Nicholson reflect Catherine’s shared experience of being a mother.
