'I am very spoilt and have two gorgeous Oubas wraps - one in navy and one green. They are wonderful quality and extremely versatile.'
'Whether shopping in person or online the high level of customer service is second to none. Little personal touches make such a difference.
The quality of Oubas speaks for itself and attracts so many compliments.'
I have two cardigans, they look fantastic, extremely comfortable and wear beautifully.
Founded in 2012 by Winchester School of Art graduate Kate Stalker, the brand was established to create beautiful pieces with integrity, made in Britain.
After graduating, Kate worked for Toast gaining valuable experience in knitwear design and manufacturing. After this experience Kate returned home to Cumbria and began forming a collection inspired by the surrounding landscape and heritage of the textile trades of the past.
She invested in a reconditioned Santagostina v-bed machine and a linker, and started her brand with a range of four scarf designs. The 'Brant Wrap' is now our statement piece from this initial range.
She designs and produces a range of true knitwear and accessories in the finest yarns from internationally renowned mills. Collections are made in her Lake District workshop and in Scottish and English knitwear mills.
Whether it is the traditional dying and spinning of the yarns she uses, or the quality and detailed craftsmanship of the knitting itself. Oubas is distinctive and has grown a loyal following.
Pieces are made seasonally in limited batches.
