Donna Wilson, Owner & Creative Director
Donna Wilson is an award-winning Scottish textile and product designer with 20 years’ experience of brand building, designing, manufacturing, marketing, selling and shipping her work across the world. Having established her one-woman studio in London in 2003, she now employs eight full-time staff.
Donna has collaborated with renowned retailers and brands including Hermes, LeSportsac, Mamas & Papas and the V&A Museums, and her work has been exhibited around the world. Her colourful, distinctive designs, inspired by a love of nature and a life-long love for craft and making, have won her a string of awards including Elle Decoration’s Designer of the Year.
As a forerunner of the contemporary craft movement, Donna has always remained true to her principles, using traditional techniques and locally based suppliers wherever possible. Knit Shop is a natural next step for her, enabling her to oversee production of her own designs, while investing in the regeneration of the Scottish textile industry.
