Accessories designer, Charlie Wilkinson has always been a maker. She began working with cork after graduating from London College of Fashion, specialising in bags and leather goods. Following a short stint in the sustainability department of Gucci in Florence as a result of developing an eco-resin and cork material for shoes and hard luggage she decided she wanted to keep using cork for her own projects in homewares and Dote Studio was born.
"I trained at London College of Fashion which is where I began my love of working with cork! It’s a super sustainable wonder-material and so pleasing to work with. Keeping my creativity and love of cork and colour (and house plants!) satisfied. I work on all the projects at my home in Bristol."
