Laine Toia pays tribute to her roots through beautiful woven works
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.
