Two 8ths

hethersgill, Cumbria

Hello, I'm Catherine from Two 8ths, an independent British brand that likes to add a little luxury to life's celebrations.I work with luxury textiles to create a range of decorations, Christmas stockings and home accessories.

I work from a little black cabin at the bottom of my garden in rural Cumbria, designing and creating everything for my range.

The story behind the business
Meet catherine

Two 8ths was started in February 2022, as I felt I needed a new creative outlet, and the designs I was producing didn't feel like the perfect fit for another business I run.

I am a self taught sewer, having started many years ago machine sewing greetings cards for local shops when my children were small. From there, I started making the children basic clothes, and then in 2018 I designed our luxury velvet Christmas stocking that has been featured in magazines, and on TV. I have even produced a version for a Coca Cola campaign. I have sent these all over the world, and I feel honored that something I have created has been chosen to be part of someone's festive celebrations.

I pride myself on choosing the very best of fabrics to work with, and I take great care in the finish of every order I make, ensuring every customer is happy.
