Nanimarquina is marking thirty years of creating unique carpets and they are releasing several new rug collections to celebrate. Driven by a singular desire, Nani established Nanimarquina in 1987 with a clear goal: to design unique and surprising handcrafted rugs for people to enjoy. The idea of blending contemporary design to traditional rugs was well received and soon Nanimarquina embarked on the adventure of outsourcing production to those countries that offered cultural value and unlimited possibilities for rug craftsmanship.
The perfect gift for a 30-year milestone, the Nanimarquina Hayon x Nani is a dreamy, wild collection with a great sense of humor. A first glance reveals a chaotic tangle of colors and shapes that invade the rug. However, after looking carefully, the imagination of Jaime Hayón springs to life: turtles, lips, hands, stools, fish, half men – half birds.
Created using the hand tufting technique, the definitive and faithful reproduction of the original sketch by the designer is achieved. 100% New Zealand wool, many size options available.
Nanimarquina is a family-owned company, and a pioneer in the field of contemporary rug design. They are always searching for innovation, handcrafted techniques, and new materials. They are invested in conveying the essence of their brand, highlighting their values to produce quality rugs that blend traditional techniques and modern design.
When creating the Shade Collection, designer Begüm Cana Özgür emphasized: "this is a handmade flat-weave rug that generates an incredible and well-rounded diffusion of color. The surface releases a sense of tranquillity and well-being that is balanced by the penetrating vibration of colors." Shade is available in three ombré palettes: from turquoise to eggplant, russet to Klein blue, and raspberry to forest green.
Working with local and international designers Nanimarquina ensures a diversity of themes and experimentation with various textures, materials and shapes. The result: one-of-a-kind Nanimarquina rugs for each customer. A rug for each individual space and emotion.
Inspired by feathers, the Quill Collection is drawn by hand, each design is organic and subtle. Quill expresses the understanding of the beauty that lies in the modest, rustic and imperfect. “Like Nature where no two shapes are alike, each Quill rug has its own expression, like a living creature.” - designer Nao Tamura.
Available in three sizes and a pastel palette including: ivory, pale olive, and stone green, the Quill rugs are beautiful alone and can also be placed together to form inspiring combinations.
Global thinking. This is one of Nanimarquina’s values — being aware of others and trying to do their bit to improve the lives of people who live in the areas where the rugs are produced. Nanimarquina relocated all their production to these areas of the world allowing them to boost local economies in these countries and offer new opportunities and improved living standards for the local people.
A slim, hand-woven Kilim, the Blend Rug Collection applies the basic rules of color theory, with three available models in which hue, luminosity, and saturation vary. This original rug from Pakistan will delight those passionate about color. Made of 100% Hand Spun Afghan Wool.
An artisanal flat-weave, made in India, the Mía Rug Collection is a Dhurrie created by joining three pieces, individually dyed, to obtain a worn, lived-in effect. Made of 100% New Zealand Wool and available in four color options.
Caring for the environment is a key preoccupation at Nanimarquina. Under the international premise of “reuse, reduce, recycle”, they pay the utmost attention in caring for and preserving the environment that surrounds them. Using biodegradable and recycled products, experimenting with different types of textures and fibers and using traditional production techniques all contribute towards preserving natural resources for the use and enjoyment of future generations.
The Tres Collection reflects Nanimarquina’s passion for craftsmanship, specifically paying tribute to the ancient craft of weaving. Tres is a traditional Indian flat-weave Dhurrie rug. Its unique quality lies in the production of three independent parts in which different fibers predominate.
The Jie Collection was designed by Neri & Hu, who take inspiration from the tile patterns of Shanghai streets, a place where life literally happens. The name of the collection corresponds to Jie, the Chinese character that embodies the essence of a city: the constant movement, dynamism and frenetic activity. The result is an eclectic hand-tufted rug presenting different pile heights and finishes.
Why do you need a rug? Because “a carpet is the soul of the apartment” says Edgar A. Poe.
Rugs define spaces, frame ambiences and establish interfaces while conveying a sensation of warmth that creates a welcoming work or home environment. Beyond the impression created by their beauty, colors, textures and design, rugs also affect mood. Architects and interior designers consider rugs an essential part of a room’s decoration. Rugs and ceramics have been a companion for human beings from prehistory to today. A rug is a house in the desert.
