WHO IS NODO?
NODO is a London handmade brand with Italian roots.
Nodo in Italian means ‘knot’.
We use the expression, ‘fare il nodo’ to remind us ‘not to forget’.
Sara has founded NODO one year and a half ago, then she came across a lot of different people who helped her create and develop ideas, images and designs.
That's why NODO defines itself as a little community and named its website wearenodo.com.
WHAT NODO DOES?
NODO is a contemporary way to celebrate antique techniques.
We are fascinated by the art of passing down wearable craft from generation to generation, and by the slow process of create a garment entirely by hand.
Our mantra is that every single piece is strictly made using hand skills.
We create unique jewelry and accessories using different knots, knitting and crocheting techniques on recycled or natural materials.
At NODO we truly believe and celebrate the great craftsmanship that goes into designing, and the beauty of handmade imperfection.
We trust that NODO’s greatest strength is its uniqueness.
We want to stay faithful to this philosophy in the future and we wish to keep making every piece by hand.
Our desire is to collaborate with different people and a variety of cultures, to experiment with new materials and create a vast product range.
Sharing our craft with you on Kickstarter opens the door to exploring these new possibilities.
We want to promote our products through a brand new website, and be able to bring them to you through our dedicated online shop.
We also want to make enough NODO jewelry to be able to ship our products worldwide.
Our aim for this campaign is to establish ourselves as a company, employ and train fellow NODO's, bring costs down on materials and packaging.
Ultimately keep the creativity going to bring a new line of 'knotted' possibilities to share with you each season!
We are glad to offer some accessories from our first collection Cut Out as a reward.
We also offer you through Kickstarter the opportunity to get bespoke color combinations on our designs ad a few limited editions.

NODO is all about colors.
We believe in the power of colors and in the idea that they can affect our mood.
There are 18 shades in our look book which can help you find the right match for that impossible-to-match pair of shoes.
Feel free to choose something unusual or a classical color combination, mix and match as you wish and then contact us and let us know what we can create only for you!
We also made a few color combo's in case you need some inspiration...
Risks and challenges
We understand that when making something by hand it could delay production and therefore push back shipping.
However, Sara is very fast with her hands and hopefully with the help of a fellow trainee, after we reach our Kickstarter goal, we will be able to stay true to our shipping dates.
One of our aims is to be able to train fellow NODO's - and keep the craft and tradition alive.
We want to keep the product fair trade and made by trusted hands.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
