Inspired by Victorian tiles found throughout the Scottish city of Glasgow, the Tenement Tiles is a collaboration between designer Karie Westermann and indie dyer Old Maiden Aunt.

The fingerless gloves take their cue from late Victorian architecture with beautiful colourwork and corrugated ribbing. The pattern booklet comes complete with photographs and an essay about tiles, false teeth, and cholera outbreaks!

The pattern is exclusive to Old Maiden Aunt and is knitted in the popular OMA Merino Superwash 4ply. The kit includes a specially commissioned colourway.
