The creator of Hoop&Bone, Katy Eccles, lives and works in Edinburgh. Katy is a self-taught embroiderer with a background in the arts. Katy stitches as she would paint or draw, so no two Hoop&Bone pieces are ever the same. Each embroidery is individually designed from sketches and hand-stitched onto a variety of materials, from silk and velvet to linen. Her work focuses primarily on native British birds, the form and contour of their skulls as well as the texture of their plumage. More recently she has been working on a Sea Life collection and an exclusive Tropical bird collection created for Pad Lifestyle using beautiful vibrant silks and threads - shop the collection here.
