Meet Katie Smith, founder of Smitten Textile Designs. Katie's textile crush started when she was young. As a teenager, she hoarded charity-shop fabrics, obsessively sniffing out textiles with superior weaves and designs. This remains at the core of her business ethos: quality over quantity; carefully curated colours that change and evolve subtly and run against the prevailing tide of mass consumption. Katie is based in Auckland, New Zealand.
