Next-generation wool yarns

showcased in Māori woven artworks

A Māori wāhine at one of the country’s largest woollen carpet exporters is utilising her skill in traditional raranga (weaving) to turn next-generation wool yarns into original artworks.

Sheryn Rerekura, a textile worker at Bremworth, spent two years completing a diploma in traditional Māori weaving at Te Wānanga o Aotearoa, before combining her passions for sustainability and art.

The wool used in the production of the artworks is sourced from Bremworth’s research and development division - which is developing next-generation yarns for the export and domestic carpet markets.
