Kate Whitehead

Textile Artist

Chorlton, Greater Manchester


weave, Embroidery, Textiles


Kate Whitehead is a textile artist specialising in weave & embroidery. Kate’s
work is a protest against the way textiles are consumed in western society.  Tired of a world in which clothes are produced and thrown away without thought to the consequences; where the fashion industry and media impose identities on us. Kate’s rebellion is to go back to slower processes, embrace tradition, salvage the discarded, fix the broken.

Kate’s perspective on cloth is completely in line with the slow fashion movement, which encourages slower production schedules, fair wages, lower carbon footprints and minimum waste.
