Today we would like to recognize a peculiar Etsy shop called NAÏVE, offering unique pieces of natural textile art as clothing, accessories, and decor. Items include handbags, clutches, shawls, blouses, and wall hangings made of pure natural fibers such as wool and silk.
The woman behind this distinctive shop is Nerieda Bonmati, based out of Oaxaca, Mexico where she collaborates with several indigenous communities to help keep their prodigious crafts. Her background is in costume design for films and theatre in Spain which soon brought her to live a textile adventure, discovering Mexican techniques that are all so very inspiring. She highly believes in "Slow Fashion" using chemical free, higher quality materials and natural dyes to support her creative process.
Another piece we highly admire is the following evening party clutch, called the "WILD NIGHT". This clutch is made of marino wool embellished with natural silk fibers. It is light, soft to the touch, and also very resistant making it perfect for a night out on the town or practical for every day use.
And if you thought the first two items were interesting, check out this great merino wool eye glass case. This is a one of a kind piece of art made of quality wool and inspired by surrealistic landscapes. We just love the texture and creativity behind this item.
One last piece we would like to feature is this fantastic, hand embroidered wall hanging. This item is inspired by Mexican textiles and nature. It is made with cotton thread and wool yarn on thick white cotton, woven in a foot loom that Nerieda purchased from an old weaver in the area where she lives. One truly couldn't find this piece of art any where else.
