Be­spoke Weav­ing

Laine Toia pays trib­ute to her roots through beau­ti­ful wo­ven works

Your Home and Garden - - News -

Tal­ented weaver Laine Toia uses nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als to cre­ate unique wall hang­ings and other pieces in­flu­enced by her Maori her­itage. “I come from a long line of weavers who made func­tional bas­kets and fish­ing nets for ev­ery­day life,” Laine says. She learnt to weave as a child, but has added self-taught weav­ing tech­niques to her bow since launch­ing her busi­ness, Be­spoke Weav­ing. Much of her work is in­spired by New Zealand land­scapes. Laine also holds weav­ing work­shops and teaches classes.
