The Short Story

Hey! I'm Rainie 👋 the wonder woman behind The Unusual Pear, my small family-run business based in Newcastle, Australia.

The Unusual Pear was born in 2014 out of a love for making beautiful things and busying my hands to help quieten my mind.

Through my love of fibre art, I have designed my own range of weaving and spinning supplies, bringing people joy for 7+ years. To complement my designs, I am proud to partner with a growing number of brands who share our values.

Please get in touch if you have any questions, I can't wait to hear from you.
