Catherine Rowe is a British designer whose work embodies luxury. Inspired largely by her love of nature and wildlife, Catherine’s illustrations marry tradition with contemporary style.
Her medium is highly unusual - all of her drawings are created by hand using the technique of scraperboard. Colour is then added separately and digitally, enhancing Catherine’s analogue drawings.
All of Catherine's products are made with a small production company in London* who share Catherine's eco-friendly and sustainability values.
Catherine Rowe won the Liberty Open Call for a new iconic Liberty fabric in 2018. Her winning design ‘Palace Gardens’ was launched in 2019 and her career has flourished ever since.
Catherine trained as an Illustrator at Cambridge School of Art. With an impressive list of licenses to her name, clients include Anthropologie, Museums & Galleries, Cocoon Home, Paperchase, The National Trust, Lagom Design, and Liberty Fabrics.
*As of 2020 Catherine's throws are woven and made in the USA. Fabric by the metre is printed in Faversham by a responsible printing company. Fabrics are sourced within the EU.
