NUNO textiles are incredibly beautiful to look at and handle. By wrapping a NUNO shawl around your shoulders, or tying a scarf around your neck, you become an active participant in the creative process. No matter how beautiful it is in itself, only you can bring a simple piece of cloth to life as a functional textile.

NUNO's "Circle Bricks" Half-Size Shawl is woven into this colorful fabric in a linked circle motif using special S and Z twisted yarns for a crepe-like stretch. Uniformly long, fine Merino wool--arguably the highest quality wool in the world--is as heat-retentive as it is soft on the skin.  In soft shades of green, blue, and ochre with a splash of orange.

Measures 78.7" L x 11.8" W

100% Merino Wool

Founded in 1984 by Reiko Sudo and Junichi Arai, NUNO is a highly innovative and influential textile design firm based in Tokyo, Japan. The word 'nuno' means fabric in Japanese, and the company - led by Sudo since 1987 - is known for its unconventional, experimental approach to textile design. Combining traditional weaving techniques with state-of-the-art materials and manufacturing technologies, the special production processes behind each of NUNO’s unique designs rely heavily on the expertise of Japan’s highly skilled artisans. Inspiration comes from immediate observation of what materials can and cannot do, and some of NUNO's more interesting fabrics result from hands-on encounters with new, cutting-edge materials and technologies. Examples of NUNO fabrics have been included in many international exhibitions and are held in the permanent collections of numerous major museums worldwide.
