Niche Textile Studio and The River come together for an exhibition celebrating our locally made pieces.
We are two Wellington based makers that are concerned with handcrafting quality objects. We share an appreciation of craft with our respective materials (wood and wool) and are interested in their complementary nature.
Both practices, design and make small runs and bespoke pieces to fully utilise locally sourced materials and avoid overproduction. Through this conscious design process we can remain nimble, experimental and engaged makers.
As small design practices we believe that strengthening connections and collaboration with local businesses, studios and community groups concerned with ethical and sustainable design enables the growth of a sustainable economy.
