Angela Bellenger and Antoinette Ferwerda Ninnho Founders

Welcome to Ninnho

A luxury collection of designer towels brought to you by Angela Bellenger and Melbourne based artist and designer Antoinette Ferwerda.  As friends they worked for years in sales and marketing in the pharmaceutical industry and decided to make their dream to create luxury towels together a reality.

If you love a splash of colour and want some art for your bathroom, by your pool or beachside then look no further.  Ninnho’s pure cotton towels are designed in Melbourne and crafted in Europe.  Each unique design is woven by specialist craftsmen in Portugal, whose trade has been passed down through the generations.

The secret to Ninnho is the fact the entire collection is made up of limited-edition design stories.  Each story builds on the last and the ‘small batch’ approach means the range will retain its feeling of exclusivity.

NINNHO DESIGNER:  Antoinette Ferwerda

Antoinette is a Melbourne artist who loves colour and pattern.  Antoinette draws inspiration from the natural world to create artworks in acrylic paint, ink, and collage - plus she has a penchant for painting palm tree pods and cast deer alters.  She started designing towels in 2012 to add to her artistic portfolio.

Her art studio wall mural captures her talent for creativity, both graphic design and fine art.   Antoinette’s first solo art exhibition opened at Ministry of Art gallery in St Kilda in November 2014, the same month she was selected to be a feature artist for Camberwell Girls Grammar Art show (CamArt).  She is represented by Greenhouse Interiors and her artworks are available in boutique retailers around Australia.  She also works directly with art collectors to create private commissions for private residences and corporate spaces.

Each Ninnho towel has been designed with the same exquisite attention to detail as Antoinette’s artworks. They are produced in a limited edition range, each with a unique design story…..a true piece of art.
