Design notes from Niela
Wrap up in irresistibly tactile, warm and lightweight furrows of uncrushable knit.
Rigg is our best-selling collection, and it has been a staple since the Nielanell studio opened in 2008.
Rigg jackets and capes are particular favourites of our customers, who often come back to buy a second (or third, or fourth!) colour of these simple, easy-to-wear pieces. The textile itself makes use of manipulated tension in knitting, creating pockets of air between ridges (riggs). It just feels wonderful to wear.

We make a large range of colours, mostly in very limited editions. So if you see something you like it’s best to grab it—it’s unlikely to be repeated.
