Catherine Aitken





Leith, Edinburgh.


Deep in Trainspotting country, next to the Water of Leith and all the bars and restaurants you could ask for is the Catherine Aitken studio. Based in Leith, in the north of Edinburgh and close to the port - this little studio space teems with industry, originality and vitality. Catherine's background is in film and television where she had a career producing feature films and television drama. She first designed and produced handbags to promote a film she was financing at the Cannes Film Festival. Unfortunately, that particular film didn't reach the silver screen but a new career was waiting in the wings. Three years ago she gave up film production to concentrate on her own label and since then the business has grown and the collection expanded each season.
