Nikki Gabriel





“Knitwear and Textile Designer: My approach to hand-making is about building structures that experiment with techniques and form.

Raw materials and fibres are the initial inspiration to the artisan collections I produce. These productions involve labour intensive knitted pieces combining old craft practices with new materials and innovations in knit production.

I love working with old-worldly techniques and hand finishing, yet I also venture into and mix new materials, yarns, and industrialised processes into my work; always attempting to investigate an original design outcome”. [From the artist’s website/ Du website de l’artiste].
