Katrina Wight, UK Printed Concepts for Fashion, Home & Giftware
The Kat & Monocle is an independent business, based in Hackney, providing printed concepts for Fashion, Home and Giftware. It was established by Katrina Wight, a textile designer from North Yorkshire, to offer ‘fine, honest goods that make people smile’. As a vet’s daughter, she creates intricate, hand drawings of ‘gentrified’ animals, which are bursting with character and eccentric charm. These illustrations are often combined with pattern and applied to products such as dinnerware, greetings cards, t-shirts, and neckties. All of these products are printed in the UK, using environmentally sustainable materials and are truly British in style.
Katrina also accepts commissions, such as bespoke greetings cards and wedding invitations, and has collaborated with brands such as the US Wallpaper company, Studio Printworks and Hackney Council
