ROAM

ArtForm: City Showcase Markets

We are Sonia Ambrosano and Lachlan Munro, textile and knitwear
designers, based in the heart of the Scottish Borders (just south of
Edinburgh), but working with clients throughout Europe and beyond.
In early 2007, we embarked upon Studio Roam, a personal project that
would allow us to design and knit the pieces we have always dreamed
about.

Every day, studio ROAM meet, work and share knit knowledge at our
studio situated in Galashiels, which has a long and distinguished textile and
knitwear heritage. It is here that we dream, craft and create the softest
most luxurious knitted products. It also happens to be surrounded by some
rather beautiful countryside, full of rolling hills and winding rivers, which
inspires us every day.

We are determined to respect this nature and history and look to use only
the finest natural and sustainable materials we can.

We are using these wonderful materials to create unique and limited
edition decorative knitted products for house-baby-fashion.

Our products are of eclectic spirit, tracing our passions for pattern, textiles,
travel and early morning places when the birds are waking.

Our vision is simple: to create warm, soulful products that express our
collective imagination, inspiring and evoking wonderful thoughts of travel
and distant places.

We use only the finest qualities of cashmere and wool for production,
creating blankets of sumptuous touch and drape.

We take great pride in sourcing the finest Scottish Cashmere which gives our
blankets unrivalled touch and drape and the resilience to last a lifetime.
Despite the myths, your cashmere blanket is easy to care for and loves a
gentle wash to keep it looking as beautiful as ever. In fact, with simple wash
care, your treasured present will become softer and more luxurious as the
years roll by.

Blankets are knitted by ROAM in Hawick, in the heart of the Scottish Borders
and centre of the Scottish Cashmere Knitting industry. Hawick’s knitwear
heritage dates back well over 100 years, with manufacturing knowledge skills
being passed on from generation to generation.

ROAM are proud to be part of this story and have a combined experience of
over 30 years working with various organisations within the industry.
Our growing list of discerning , word-of-mouth customers know that we are the
place to come for wonderful, contemporary heirlooms that are a little bit out of
the ordinary and certain to raise happy smiles for many years to come.

Our most recent collaboration has been with Eley Kishimoto.
Roam teamed up with Eley Kishimoto to create a capsule collection of
sumptuous knitted blankets consisting of 6 signature designs.
