Catherine MacGruer graduated from The Glasgow School of Art after specialising in Knitted Textile Design and opened her own studio in the Highlands of Scotland in 2015. Her portfolio of work includes textile design, development, commissions and collaborative projects, as well as her own range of interior and fashion accessories.
Characterised by geometric shapes, meticulously considered compositions and uniquely inspired colour ways, Catherine’s signature designs are easily recognisable. There is a strong focus on the relationship between carefully balanced bold shapes, and all of her work is informed by the craft, history of design and new technologies of her industry.
Combined with the highest quality materials, Catherine produces beautiful contemporary textile works which are made to be treasured. Owing to her dedication and talent, Catherine was awarded the New Design Britain Award in 2015. Her work has been on display at the National Gallery of Scotland and is currently stocked in selected design and interior stores including Heal’s, where one of her designs was recently selected as one of the 'Heal’s 100’ iconic designs of the last 100 years.
