We recently discovered Nodi in New Zealand—a brand of handmade, natural-fiber rugs founded by textile designer Olivia Smith.
After having studied textiles at design school in Italy, Smith began making and selling knotted cotton necklaces as a side gig—and soon graduated to designing and selling knotted cotton, jute, and wool rugs, a task she’s been at ever since. Nodi rugs are made by hand in India, in factories certified by Care & Fair (a European nonprofit working to end child labor in the textile industry). Made in a variety of woven and knotted styles, all Nodi rugs are naturally dyed, for both eco-friendliness and a perfectly imperfect character.
In Aukland, visit the Nodi store at 1 Faraday St. For more, visit Nodi.
Nodi ships to the US, Australia, and the UK, and offers free shipping within New Zealand. The word nodi means “knots” in Italian. Seeking the perfect floor covering? Try:
