Overview

The Medina rugs collection was created by Nani Marquina, the founder of Spanish brand nanimarquina. Originally, rugs were used to protect people from direct contact with the ground. Entire communities and families gathered on their rugs, which acted as a home. Over time, the rug has become a decorative element and a vehicle for cultural messages. Hand woven out of pure Afghan wool, inspired by rugs from long ago, this Medina rugs collection revisits the original essence of rugs, focusing on texture and usage. The Medina rugs are handcrafted in the north of Pakistan, using a very old and traditional technique, the kilim, which produces flat tapestry-woven rugs.

The Medina rugs are available in two color options (Medina 1 and Medina 2) and in two sizes (Medium and Large). These high-quality rugs are entirely handcrafted, which may result in slight variances in size. These rugs are hand-dyed and color tones may vary a little, which is part of the natural beauty of the rugs. Prolonged exposure to sunlight may alter rug color tone and may even cause discoloring.

nanimarquina was founded in 1987 by Nani Marquina and has been dedicated to innovation and quality ever since, blending contemporary design and traditional craftsmanship techniques.

After studying industrial design at the Escuela Massana of Barcelona, Nani Marquina encountered success with her first bespoke textile designs. She launched her company nanimarquina in 1987 with a clear goal: to design unique and surprising handcrafted rugs. The idea of blending contemporary design to traditional rugs was well received and soon the company embarked on the adventure of outsourcing production to those countries that offered cultural value and unlimited possibilities for rug craftsmanship. Nani Marquina with her namesake brand was a pioneer in the field of contemporary rug design. Ever since its beginnings, nanimarquina has been searching for constant innovation, handcraft techniques, and new materials. Working with local and international designers to ensure a diversity of themes, nanimarquina continues to offer one-of-a-kind rugs.
