Christine Brimer is the amazing woman behind Niche Textile Studio. She designs and weaves all the products. The yarns used are all grown and processed in New Zealand,
Christine designs and weaves in her Wellington studio, inspired by the light and landscape of Aotearoa, New Zealand. She weaves with the timeless natural hues of undyed New Zealand wool yarns, which sit beautifully alongside flowers, foliage, and contemporary interior materials including timbers, concrete, steel and clay. The structural weaves evoke the play of light and shadow which reveals the forms and textures of New Zealand’s truly amazing landscape.
"As a scientist I worked with structural proteins and while the molecular parallels with wool tickle me, it’s as a designer weaving wool that I have found my niche. These designs connect the strands of my being. My head knows the wonder of wool and woven structures, my hands the joy of weaving, and my soul belongs in the land that nurtures us. I hope my work connects with and nurtures you too." - Christine Bimmer, Founder and Creator of Niche Textile Studio
