Catherine and Nick, the British couple behind the label, chose to follow their hearts in pursuit of their true passions. Inspired by a trip she took with her husband to the Sacred Valley of the Incas in Peru, Catherine made the decision to leave her career in corporate fashion, Nick having done the same some years prior. Eleven Six is a knitwear brand. As a child growing up in England, Catherine learned to knit from her mother and grandmother; encouraged by her love for the art, she studied Fashion Textiles at the prestigious Central Saint Martins and then Knitwear at the University of Brighton. Combining contemporary design with traditional Andean knitting techniques, Eleven Six offers an effortless, yet elevated approach to knit dressing for the modern woman in need of a versatile wardrobe to suit a lifestyle of work, travel and play. Inspired by Peru’s rich heritage of craftsmanship in textiles, modern separates are created from the finest spun Alpaca yarns.
