Nadia is the co-owner of the furniture, textiles and interior design firm Nightwood. She is passionate about weaving and is particularly inspired by Native American and Moroccan textiles. She first started weavning in 2007 on her own accord to make her first Navajo inspired rug. She has since learned ikat weaving, tapestry weaving and weaving on various floor looms. One of her favorite parts about weaving is the introspective process of interlacing the weft through the warp in a repeated rhythmic pattern. She finds the process of weaving meditative and healing and hopes to share this peace with others.
