....Kate behind the scenes on our Autumn 2017 shoot, Cumbria.
OUBAS KNITWEAR is a British-made knitwear brand, founded by designer Kate Wilson and based in the Lake District, England.
The studio/workshop is based in south Cumbria, and it's here the collection is designed, developed and also produced on our Italian and Japanese made knitting machinery. We knit pieces ourselves and hand finish all items in the workshop. We also work closely with carefully selected manufacturers in Scotland, to ensure our ranges can be produced to the best finish possible for us.
Our 12 gauge industrial knitting machine. Italian made in the 1950s.
Sharing the provenance and giving transparency in the materials we use is important; we share details of where the yarns and fibres we use are grown, spun and dyed, and where our products are knitted.
