NZ Wool Throw Collection Masters of Design project (2015).
This collection was designed for, and produced in, the Palmerston North weaving mill. The aim was to create a collection of finished products that utilised existing loom technologies at the mill, with an innovative use of colour, design and yarn combination in the cloth. Using 100% NZ wool and being manufactured entirely in New Zealand from fibre to finished product - a complete value chain - these throws project an optimism for the future for local wool and textile industries; a lift reflected in the summer hues and bold colour blocking.
