With a broad knowledge of textiles techniques and production, Catherine and her team regularly collaborate with companies and retailers to produce bespoke co-branded and white label products, providing design and supply chain solutions working with expert manufactures in Scotland, Portugal or our mini-factory at the studio in East London.
With years of industry experience, Catherine has worked on one-off creations for stylists, small runs of hand-finished pieces and large scale production. Our organisation, expertise and flexibility mean we can work to most compliance requests and challenging of DC’s requirements.
Catherine’s clients include Anthropologie, The White Company, Kew Gardens, Button & Sprung, Penelope Chilvers, Melt Chocolates, Yeo Valley, Mary Kilvert, Feather & Black, The Royal Academy of Arts, The National Theatre, Kate Sheridan, Daylesford, Highgrove and Harrods
Recently we worked with merchandising consultant Emma Matthews on a project for the Royal Ballet, and this is what she had to say about our products and service.
"We had been looking for someone to produce some leg warmers for the Royal Ballet for a while when my colleague stumbled across Catherine’s Instagram account. From the beginning, she had a very clear idea of the quality we were looking for and happy to co-brand the products for us. We are so pleased with our Catherine Tough, beautiful soft wool leg warmers and proud to be able to state "Made in Scotland" on the swing tag. The leg warmers complement our new Royal Ballet clothing range perfectly, and our customers love them too. We are looking forward to our next delivery in September and definitely looking to expand the products we collaborate on together"
Another regular bespoke client is store owner Jean from Cherry Didi
"We, at Cherrydidi, have used Catherine Tough design services to develop a sock range to sit within our now very successful Zak the Collie Dog Clothing range. We found the process seamless from start to finish and have enjoyed working with Catherine and her team every step of the way. We have a reordering process in place which is extremely easy, and Catherine is helpful in suggesting new colourways to freshen the Zak the Collie Dog sock collection. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending this British textile designer."
