Bio

Niku Arbabi is an Austin fiber and textile artist exploring the overlap of practical empowerment and creative expression, blurring the line between “Art” and “Craft” in sewing and fiber art. Through her creative practice and teaching of garment sewing, hand embroidery, textile printing, and modern quilting, she connects traditional and modern handcraft. Principles of reuse and the slow fashion movement inform all aspects of her practice.
