Studio Visit | Olivia Smith, NODI
After studying Textile Design at the European Institute of Design in Milan, Olivia travelled to India where she learnt the technicalities of weaving. With a love for functionality, the imperfect, and the humble knot, NODI was born...
Since then, Olivia has built herself an inspiring small scale business with the things she appreciates most: valuable relationships, transparency in materials and product, and the art of making. Her home and work space echo these values in naturally dyed textiles and thoughtful art pieces. We spied a beautiful collection of books and photographic prints, sampled tea from India, and had a sneak peek at the new NODI collection. Olivia talked us through fascinating stories from her travels, her business learning curves, and of course, her love for anything tactile.
