Q&A with Cathal McAteer

April 29, 2015

Cathal McAteer grew up in Cumbernauld outside Glasgow, Scotland. He started working in fashion at the age of 16 through a retail job at legendary Glasgow clothing store "Ichi Ni San". From there on the retail floor, he continued onwards and upwards working as a buyer, in sales and production before founding his own brand Folk in London. Today, Folk is an internationally renowned brand which is only stocked in premium retailers all over the world, Cathal borrowed his motto from design supremo Charles Eames, who said ”the details are not the details, they are the design”. 
What is your most important task in life and in your work?
Life - is to live with an energy for it. It being life. Positive and fun... this can also be deemed reckless at times.... but it definitely feels more fun. In my work.... the same.
What is your most important source of inspiration in your work and or life?
Mostly my friends and shit we do and see. Hiking in Snowdonia, a party in Krakow. I love seeing people express themselves whether that be in performance... John Grant at the Festival Hall Or at Sadlers Wells to see Akram.
What is your favourite occupation at the moment?
Designing and making things having things made. 
What is your relation to Goods and or Kasper owner of Goods?
Goods and Kasper..... It’s been a nice long journey. From our first meeting in Copenhagen many summers ago.... He really gets the aesthetic, the craft that goes into each piece and most importantly does not get too impressed about it all.
The relationship is honest. He is someone we have always welcomed into our house.....
What makes your partnership with Goods a relevant for you and your
business?
The honesty I mentioned - for me to thrive in a business sector that requires alot more than being good at design, you need confident, honest feedback. With Goods we get this and alot more. Thanks Kasper
What’s your favourite place in Copenhagen?
The swimming in the city its really ace.... and the Bobi bar where my friend took me too.
Would you like to recommend something? (could be anything)
Have you got all day...... fuck. To get you started, Presidente Rum to warm the cockles... then onto listening to the Cuban brothers show on SohoLondonradio.com it’s really fucking funny. Nick Goss's paintings and Rachel Jones, Camden Hells beer. Procreating - what fun.
Do you want to add anything?
So looking forward to having a holiday.
