Cotton Clara Ltd

First Floor, O.A.C, 12 Frederick Street, Loughborough LE11 3BJ

Fresh colour combinations and typography feature strongly in Chloe’s modern craft designs, inspired by the bygone era of small haberdashery shops, and traditional needle crafts. Cotton Clara brings a new, 21st century approach to embroidery kits, aiming to please design loving interiors addicts and tempt them to try some hand stitching.

With agile and efficient processes Chloe and her team designs products that are reflective of the world we live in capturing the emotion and sentiment of a particular time, whilst the wider catalogue also offers core, ever popular kits ensuring there’s something for everyone, whether a beginner or armed with more proficient skills.

Stylish, quirky and beautifully made in the UK, with a HQ and studio space located in a characterful old art college in Loughborough, Cotton Clara offers products for a new generation of makers and crafters who are looking for a different way to relax, unwind and de-stress.

All Cotton Clara kits include everything the customer needs to create, from the hoop to the thread, the wadding to comprehensive instructions. Mindful of the customer experience at every point in the process, over the years the kits have developed to truly be that all encompassing craft product that ensures it appeals to both the beginner and the more experienced crafter.


Chloe Hardisty, CEO and founder:

“I started Cotton Clara while on maternity leave with my second son, and what started as a side hustle has turned into a thriving full-time endeavour! My passion has always been to make and be creative, and my vision is for Cotton Clara to be a one stop shop for products and tools for crafting but also a supportive and inspiring community sharing ideas, encouragement and projects. I know how much making and creating helps me emotionally and I want to show everyone how much it can benefit them.”
