About The Kat & Monocle
It was set up by Katrina Wight, a textile designer from the North of England, with the aim of offering ‘fine, honest goods, that make people smile’. Having worked for a number of large High Street retailers, Katrina decided to break away towards the end of 2012 and set up her own business to achieve the above goals and produce something ‘different from the norm’.
As a vet’s daughter she grew up surrounded by cats and dogs, which have always been an integral part of her life. This has inspired her to create intricate, pencil drawings, of pets, which she puts into character and ‘gentrifies’ with tops hats, monocles and ‘articles’ such as these, hence her business name, ‘The Kat & Monocle’. Her illustrations are bursting with humour and British eccentricity and it is the attention to detail, which makes them so captivating.
