Born 1974 in Denmark, Katrine Mow is the textile designer responsible for making MOW Living one of the most sought after newcomers in Scandinavia’s latest design wave. Having worked for several years as an interior designer in Copenhagen, Katrine changed direction and concentrated on putting her own ideas into production by forming MOW Living with husband Kristian Jakobsen.
The company has quickly become recognised for its unorthodox take on everyday imagery using graphical patterns that transform natural and urban references into a playful collection of fabrics and accessories. Dollis Fall is the latest addition to this range - a design that blends and juxtaposes funky stripes to reflect the seasonal colour changes of autumn. By 2008 MOW Living hopes to have all of its collection manufactured solely in 100% organic cotton.
Katrine and Kristian live in Copenhagen with their two boys, aged 1 and 4.
