About

I'm Amy, I'm 29 and I am The Cotton Shop.

I started The Cotton Shop in 2018 when I was expecting my daughter, Norah, who inspires me to create everything I make.

My shop took off on Instagram where I found myself surrounded by like minded new mums who wanted handmade keepsakes, made from organic quality materials, honesty and love, that stand out from the crowd with an individual simple scandi style.

I embarked upon my latest project, Nan Knits, in 2021, being inspired by the handmade jumpers and cardigans my grandma made for Norah. When she outgrew them they just sat in a box and I thought about revamping them with some crochet embellishments. I now source a large range of sizes and styles of knitted items and create monthly batches of one of a kind 'Nan Knits'.

I upload ready to buy products on the 1st of every month and orders are shipped promptly from the next day of purchase. I do not currently offer any wholesale prices or sell to any third party sellers. If you are purchasing The Cotton Shop items from anywhere other than this website please report it to me immediately. 

I do not take product requests but do try to upload a variety of products each month. I also am not in the position to take pre-order payment or reserve items, the way I run the shop is the easiest for me while full time parenting and fairest for all who wish to purchase.
