    Celebrate International Women's Day At Catherine Tough

     

    Catherine Tough is a UK business
    …started by a woman.

    The business is mostly staffed
    …by women.

    We supply small businesses and
    larger brands and stores
    …mostly run by women.

    Most of the design & making
    at Catherine Tough is done
    ...by women.

    Our East London studio is
    a stone's throw away from Bow.

    Where on March 8, 1914, the march
    in support of women's suffrage
    started its procession.

    On March 8, 1917, in Petrograd, 
    the capital of the Russian Empire,
    women textile workers
    began a demonstration.

    A demonstration some believe
    acted as a catalyst for
    the Russian Revolution.

    As women textile workers
    ourselves, we set up, nearly
    20 years ago, to offer an alternative.

    An alternative to all-consuming
    mass-production, uncaring
    service, exploitation and
    negative discrimination.

    A Revolution Of Sorts

    We continue, to this
    day, making products
    based on those same values.

    Made from natural,
    earth-given materials.

    Made without cruelty.

    Made without exploitation.

    Made without discrimination.

    Made by people.

    Made for people.

    Made in a spirit of mutual co-operation
    and fair compensation.

    We continue to 'do our bit'.

    Whatever the challenges.

    Including manufacturing
    within the UK wherever
    possible.
