Ashley has over 10 years of experience working in retail and customer service and 10 years of design trianing to Masters level. Having worked for lighting, furniture and home accessory retailers Ashley has developed a knack for being able to source and provide the perfect items to complement or create the perfect look or design for any taste.”

Ashley is known to many under the pseudonym ‘knitboy’ which is a name he picked up when specialising in knitted textiles as he studied on the BA(hons) Textile Crafts course. Ashley went on then to teach knit as a part time lecturer on the Textile Crafts course and also the Costume with textiles course at the university of huddersfield The Boy works in a design and consultation capacity, helping and advising on all aspects of design.
