Fibre art has risen in popularity in the past few years. There is something about the soft tactile textures that have a way of soothing the soul and bringing character into a home or work space. One textile designer who is creating striking fibre art pieces is Nom. Characterised by bold geometric patterns Nom’s pieces are handcrafted from 100% cotton fibres woven onto beech wood frames.
Born in Eswatini (Swaziland) and raised in the Netherlands, where she lives and works, Nom trained as a textile designer, and upon graduating began a career as a fashion designer working for different brands. After 12 years in the business, Nom turned her attention to experimenting with and exploring her creative ideas. She eventually settled on a combination of macrame and weaving techniques. Keeping things simple is part of her philosophy and this is displayed in the forms and patterns of her art pieces.
Nom’s designs are complementary meaning single wall hangings can be combined to creating interesting wall features.
