Cashmere Designer Ros Duke

Ros Duke is a luxury cashmere knitwear label known for a fusion of modern design with a commitment to highest quality cashmere and craftsmanship.

Through a modern use of beautiful pure cashmere and gently manipulated textures, Ros Duke creates personal pieces, that celebrate individuality and sustainability. 

Each collection is designed in Ireland, and knit by Irish and European artisan makers who knit pieces that are luxurious, original, and timeless. Ros works closely with the knitters and factories and cares about the people involved in the production of her knitwear.

Taking inspiration from simple everyday life, and the process of knitting she loves so much, Ros uses innovative techniques, luxurious pure cashmere from Loro Piana, and a deep understanding of shape to create her aesthetic. Each collection is an exploration of surface texture and repeat pattern. They are to be worn and loved for a long time.

She spent 4 years creating knitted textiles for Lainey Keogh, before joining John Rocha and working alongside John and Simone for over 10 years, creating their mainline patterns.
