The story and virtues behind Nodi Handwoven Rugs.
The word Nodi translates to knots. The very action founder Olivia Smith found herself repeating over and over again when studying Textile Design in Milan.
With a fascination towards hand making and a dedication to practicing a craft, Olivia packed her bags and moved to India, to learn the technicalities of weaving and the harvesting of jute. This was the very seed, which would later become Nodi— Handwoven Rugs.
Nodi now works with Goodweave, a charity that is passionate about abolishing child labour, making it their priority to end forced labour in the rug industry. GoodWeave wants every child to have the right to their childhood, freedom and access to education. The charity begun in 1994, by Kailash Satyarthi, a Nobel peace prize-winner and children’s right activist.
Using all natural fibres and considerate practises, Nodi, celebrates integrity. It is an ode to imperfect beauty in modern design. Using textures and skill that work together to create a rug that transforms and adds character to a space, Nodi, is both exquisite and humble.
