Personalisation Service by Hoop & Bone
We’re delighted to now be offering a personalisation service in partnership with Edinburgh based embroidery artist Katy Eccles who runs Hoop & Bone.
About Katy Eccles
Katy is a self taught embroiderer with a background in the arts. All her beautiful pieces are individually designed from sketches and then hand stitched onto her chosen medium – in this case cashmere! She took up embroidering just over five years ago by total chance and uses a technique called thread painting meaning she tends to stitch as she would paint or draw, so no two pieces are ever the same.
Katy grew up surrounded by original oil paintings and textiles by her Irish grandmother, sculptures and paintings by her talented architect father and a garden of eden created by her amazing mother- all of which has influenced her interest in design, craft and art. Her great grandfather owned a Tailor’s in Brigg, Lincolnshire, and her grandmother worked as a fabric designer for York St Linen Mill in Belfast. So textiles are definitely in the blood!
Katy’s passion for objects of beauty was further extended studying Art History at Cambridge. She then went on to work as a teacher, a gallery manager and an art consultant in Australia and latterly a brand executive for a luxury lifestyle company in Edinburgh. Returning to Scotland in 2015 she started experimenting with embroidery and Hoop&Bone was born.
We are thrilled to partner with her on this bespoke service!
How it works
If you’d like to embroider a special new arrival’s name on one of our beautiful baby blankets please enter the name or initials into the box on the product page and then select a thread colour. There is a charge of £6 per letter and your total charge will automatically be added to your basket.
Lead time for embroidery is 4 weeks. If the gift is urgent please let us know and we will endeavour to get your blanket to you sooner.
All blankets come in a signature Rosie Sugden gift box made from 100% recycled material. If your blanket is a gift and you’d like us to ship your blanket directly to someone special please pop their address as the delivery address at checkout. There are no prices displayed on any of our products.
If you would like something other than a name embroidered Katy can offer an array of different designs such as ladybirds, birds, butterflies, hearts, wings and stars. We can also accept bespoke commissions for other styles from our range such as the socks. Please feel free to get in touch about bespoke commissions.
