Empy Designs's journey starts with founder and designer maker, Katrine Knowland. After graduating from university I was faced with the most common question graduates come up against; what next? Having grown up with a dressmaker/knitter/interior designer for a mother crafting and making was part of everyday life. When asked what my ideal career path would be empy designs was the top answer and so was born in July 2012.
Supporting British made products has always been important to me and is what formed empy designs's ethos. I take my inspiration from nature and enjoy designing and handmaking one off products. My work takes elements form my photography or screen printing and enjoy mixing medias to create bespoke pieces from design to print.
