The OUBAS Story

əʊˌbɑːs : pronounced 'oo-bas'

Named after 'Oubas Hill', Ulverston, Cumbria.

OUBAS was founded in 2012 when founder Kate was 24. Fast forward to 2022 and we have moved from a small spare room, through various workshops to an open studio where we now produce all our knitwear.

We are based on the edge of the English Lake District, in the small vibrant market town of Ulverston.



OUBAS knitwear designs appeal to those wanting subtle and understated elegance, with an appreciation of colour and detail. For those wanting to invest in pieces they will have in their wardrobe for a long time.

Our studio is open to the public if you would like to visit us.
