Since she was little Louisa always made clothes, she studied for a BA in Textiles for Fashion at Brighton University. During her 3rd year she undertook a placement at Rowan Yarns in Yorkshire who published 2 of her very early designs in Rowan Magazine No. 6. She worked as an ‘in-house’ designer for Rowan for 11 years. Since having children, she has worked alongside her husband, Stephen, a photographer. Together they created the Miss Bea series of knitting books, inspired by their children, Belle and Oscar. In 2005 she was very fortunate to be given the opportunity of introducing her own line of yarns and pattern publications, Louisa Harding Yarns. Returning to the textile Heritage of Yorkshire in October 2016 Louisa and her Husband launched a bespoke collection of Cashmere yarns showcased in a beautifully photographed pattern anthology.
