The Book of Haps - Kate Davies Design
Join Kate Davies, Jen Arnall-Culliford and a host of renowned designers as they introduce you to the wonderful world of haps.
A hap is a Scottish dialect word for a simple shawl or wrap. Haps have a particular association with the Shetland islands where, for more than a century, they were knitted for everyday wear as well as for sale.
Combining textile history with contemporary design, this book explores the story of the hap through five beautifully illustrated essays, and 13 stunning patterns.
