How To Make a Fabric Bow

They say the best things come in small packages and for us, sometimes the smallest of added touches bring the most joy. For our campaign shoot, our Design Assistant, George, hand-made the bows we used to style everything from new bag shapes to ponytails. For that extra match or clash of print to bring our pieces to life.

To help you bring a bit of customisation to your own Cath piece, George has created a step by step to show you how to make a fabric bow, with whatever fabric you have to hand.
