Woollykins is proud to host the precious plant dyed threads by NONA for the love of all your textile repairs and creations.
NONA (formerly Temaricious) is the work of Japanese textile artist Rika Stein. Rika creates threads and yarns coloured with plant dyes for the purposes of creating temari, an ancient Japanese art and meditation on craft. NONA means 9 in Japanese. 9 is one before 10. It's considered imperfect in Japan. Because it is not perfect, it will continue forever. "I embroider messages on my work, temari with naturally dyed threads. NONA threads are created from life of plants. Colors in nature are unlimited and at the same time, make you free from the fixed sense of colors.NONA's wish is to create and offer you small colourful days in life. More than grateful if we could.NONA creates art works by corresponding the nature and own sense. To create natural-dye colors with plants is to receive the life from nature again. To make a traditional temari is like traveling back in time."
