This year at Two by Two we have enjoyed the unique experience of introducing a home grown, knitwear brand to our collection and watching it develop. Oubas Knitwear was launched at the end of 2012 by local entrepreneur Kate Wilson who returned to Ulverston after training at Winchester School of Art and working as a junior designer for refined British brand Toast. This Autumn Kate is designing a scarf that will be exclusive to Two by Two. In order to work on this project with her I decided to find out more about her and her brand.
Oubas Knitwear currently has 3 scarves available in numerous colours. The wool is sourced from Scotland or Italy depending on the colour and the scarves are designed and made in Kate's studio in Ulverston. Kate hopes to develop a cardigan, a jumper and further accessories to the range this autumn and the Two by two special scarf will be launched on September 27th.
