The Chillida collection was created to pay homage to the artist Eduardo Chillida based on a chronological selection of his work: Figura Humana - 1948, Dibujo Tinta - 1957, and Manos - 1993 by Spanish brand Nanimarquina. The artwork of Eduardo Chillida (1924-2002) represents one of the greatest artistic accomplishments of the late 20th century. The Chillida rugs are hand knotted rugs made of pure New Zealand wool.

Chillida’s artistic nuances have been faithfully translated into rugs, all handmade using various techniques and fibers, such as wool, silk, and hand-spun mohair, to create different textures, showcasing the essence of his work.. 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 their natural beauty. 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.

Eduardo Chillida

Eduardo Chillida is a celebrated and prolific artist born in 1924 in San Sebastián (Spain). He studied architecture at the University of Madrid, but in 1947 he turned to drawing and sculpture and moved to Paris. Upon his return to Spain in 1951, his work started to favor iron, then wood and steel, materials representative of the Basque tradition. His work explores the definition of space through form. Over forty Chillida’s monumental sculptures are permanently installed around the world and constitute an important facet of his work. He received numerous awards, including the Grand International Sculpture Prize at the Venice Biennale (1958), the Kandinsky Prize (1960), the Carnegie Prize for Sculpture (1964), the Grand Award for Arts in France (1984), and the Jack Goldhill Award from the Royal Academy of Arts in London (1996). Chillida died in San Sebastián in 2002.
