Day 167: Donna Wilson: keep cozy
“Donna Wilson set up her company in 2003 after making odd knitted creatures for her final show at the Royal College of art. The creatures sold out and since then she has built her business designing and making a collection of curious cushions, luxurious lambswool blankets, and variety of products for you and your home.
Originally from Scotland, Donna runs a studio and workshop in London. Her hardworking team knit, sew, pack and send out products to individuals and design shops around the world – 25 countries at our last count!
Passionate about creating products that people can connect with, the studio is committed to making things that our customers will treasure. We use UK based manufacturers and suppliers wherever possible, doing our bit to keep craftsmanship alive.
In 2010 Donna won the coveted accolade of ‘Designer of the Year’ at Elle Decoration’s British Design Awards. She recently exhibited a solo show of knitted sculptures and paintings, entitled ‘Endangered Species’, at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park and has many other exciting projects planned for the year ahead.”
