Overview

The Rabari rug collection, with its exceptionally beautiful and outstanding design, was created by design team Nipa Doshi & Jonathan Levien of London-based Doshi Levien, for Spanish brand nanimarquina. These modern graphic rugs are a joyfully refined combination of patterns and techniques with a unique graphic sensuality. The designers comment: “We decided to create a series of rugs that evoke the sensual and shiny world of tribal folk embroidery of India. We wanted our collection for nanimarquina to reference the unfinished embroideries like studies of different techniques in progress, as they gradually emerge over time. The spontaneous compositions of the rugs embody the serendipity and freedom to improvise inherent in each step of a handmade piece. Joyful, irreverent and unique.” Created with 100% New Zealand wool, handmade in India with hand-knotted and hand-woven Sumak techniques.

The Rabari rug collection is comprised of two different rug patterns, Rabari 1 and Rabari 2, that are available in three sizes (Medium, Large, Extra-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. 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.
