Tena koe, my name is Louise Neilson, a lover of anything to do with textiles, printing and design.

 Abstrax.on design + print is a home based (part time) business located in Mahana, Tasman. Primarily I hand screen print fabrics and create lamps, lampshades, upholstery fabric and cushion covers....Fun stuff!

 I have a Diploma in Fashion and Textile Design (1995-1998) and Interior Design (2014) Both from NMIT (Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology)

My focus to have people enjoy what I do, and have continuous pleasure from their purchase for many years to come. I love what I do and each piece is a joy to make... some very challenging! There is always something to learn.


Because of my work commitments. I can only be at the Nelson Market once a month. Most products are 'Made to Order' only (excl. furniture) and customisable for the personal touch! Thanks for looking
