Nodi began with a simple knot. It was formed by hand with a natural fibre by the talented Olivia Smith, a creative mind with an eye for imperfect beauty.
The handmade knot began its subtle influence on Olivia when she was studying Textile Design at the International Institute of Design in Milan. She began making hand knotted cotton necklaces as a side project and here began her fascination in making something by hand. She appreciated the beauty formed through the irregular action of making a knot, the time that goes into practicing a craft, as well as the practical understanding of what happens to a natural raw fibre when it is twisted and woven. After time in India learning the technicalities of weaving, Nodi was born.
Nodi designs and creates handmade woven goods with a focus on unique textures. We celebrate the beautiful imperfections the hand crafted process creates. Our craftsmanship, all natural fibres and considered, imperfect textures work together to create a tactile rug that transforms and adds character to a space.
All our rugs are lovingly made in certified Care and Fair factories in India. The combination of the skilled artisans that weave them and our focus on developing unique textures and designs result in quality pieces made to last.
