Bruni is incredibly talented and willing to share her .research and knowledge. I am an historical demonstrator. I don't do the nalbinding, My sister does and has for the past 20 years. But we discovered this young ladies site and have learned so much about the history we all love and the crafts we try to preserve just by sharing info! I'd reccomends her and her work to anyone who has an appreciation of the Viking era

An Ancient Craft-A New Interpretation

Nidavellnir is a historical craft shop selling online and in-person at Heritage events and craft fairs in and around York.ย 
ย  ย  ย Items are all handcrafted by York Mastercraftsman, Viking-Age Archaeologist and Nalbinding Specialist Emma 'Bruni' Boast , who crafts each item by hand using historical techniques, of the ancient fibre craft of Nalbinding.ย 

Nalbinding uses long lengths of yarn, one needle and specific stitches to create durable modern items or historical garments like hats, socks and gloves for Historical Reenactment.ย 
ย  ย  Nalbound items are perfectly suitable for aspects of historical interpretation, from the Mesolithic period through to the modern times.
ย  ย  Nalbinding is a very relaxing and instinctive ancient craft, it can do wonders for mindfulness and as a creative outlet. It also gives you the opportunity to seek out local wool crafters to source local wool near you, from smallholders and sheep farmers, who are always looking for homes for their fleece.
ย  ย  It's an incredibly sustainable modern craft, coming from thousands of years of craft history and use in various cultures and time periods across the globe.

Nidavellnir focus's on the Historical application and craft narrative of Nalbinding in the Viking Age.ย ย 

Nidavellnir was instrumental in providing the research to get Nalbinding listed as an 'Endangered Heritage Craft' in the UK, with the Heritage Crafts Association.ย 

Nidavellnir is proud to support the Heritage Craft Association UK, Exarc International and has been quality assessed and is a member of the Guild of Master Craftsmen UK.

Nidavellnir undertakes independent academic research regarding Nalbinding as a heritage craft, assessing the archaeological evidence and generating teaching resources and articles to further safeguard, promote and highlight this craft in the UK.
