Studio Roam 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, they embarked upon Studio Roam, a personal project that would allow them to design and knit the pieces they had always dreamed about.
Every day, studio roam meet, work and share knit knowledge at their studio and micro factory and 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 them every day.
They are determined to respect this nature and history and look to use only the finest natural and sustainable materials they can.
They use these wonderful materials to create unique and limited edition decorative knitted products for house-baby-fashion.
The products are of eclectic spirit, tracing their passions for pattern, textiles, travel and early morning places when the birds are waking.
The vision is simple: to create warm, soulful products that express the collective imagination, inspiring and evoking wonderful thoughts of travel and distant places.
They use only the finest qualities of cashmere and wool for production, creating blankets of sumptuous touch and drape.
Each and every design has a strong identity and character and as such is treated as an individual, made to order and lovingly despatched to every new home.
Each and every item is designed and produced to order by Roam and Grahame, Studio Roam’s technician, who has worked with luxury knitwear for over 20 years. Grahame is proud to make sure each and every item receives the care and attention necessary to create a product of quality that is second to none.
