Fibres

With its constant innovation in different techniques and new materials, we are a family-owned company pioneer in the field of contemporary rug design.

Headquartered in Barcelona, our rugs are currently manufactured in countries with long-standing craftsmanship, hand knotting and weaving traditions such as India, Nepal, Pakistan and Morocco.

In terms of design, we work with well-known local and international designers to ensure a diversity of themes and experimentation with various textures, materials and shapes.

The end result is a one of a kind nanimarquina rug for each customer, each space and each emotion.

New Zealand wool

New Zealand wool

The wool from New Zealand sheep is natural, sustainable, and biodegradable. Exceptionally beautiful, this high-quality fibre is renowned for its flexibility and bright colour, ideal for weaving. The quality of the wool is determined according to a specific set of factors such as the diameter of the fibre, the colour, strength, crimp, and yield.

Rugs made from New Zealand wool are easy to care for and hypoallergenic, resisting the passage of time while minimizing condensation in the air and reducing noise levels, creating a relaxing and comfortable environment.

Afghan wool

Afghan wool

Extraordinarily rare, Ghazni wool is produced in a very specific region of Afghanistan. The thin wool fibre can reach up to 30cm in length and presents a subtle undulation that is similar to fur, offering a rich softness and density. The wool fibre is hand-spun which leads to a naturally irregular texture and color. The exceptional length and elastic structure provide high resistance for weaving, resulting in beautiful rugs that age well.

Wool felt

Wool felt

A non-woven fabric produced in sheets, felt is different from other textiles. Layers of quality wool fibres are bonded through the use of steam and pressure, which means that is no warp and weft. The vivid colours are achieved by dying the wool before the bonding process. Wool felt is easy to manipulate, offering endless creative options for our rugs.

Mohair

Mohair

With a wealth of luxurious characteristics, mohair is a fibre obtained from the Angora goat. Similar to sheep’s wool, the result is soft and fine, offering a beautiful sheen and a high quality weave for our rugs. Warm in winter due to excellent insulating properties, mohair presents the added benefit of remaining cool in summer. Composed mainly of keratin, the fibre is naturally elastic, flame- and crease-resistant, and does not felt.

Silk

Silk

A natural protein fibre, silk is produced by the larvae of silkworms reared by experts, and is considered the longest filament in nature. During the pupation period, the silkworms secrete a liquid protein that hardens when in contact with air. A second secretion produces a bonding agent that holds the filaments together. A single silkworm can produce up to 1km of filament. Heat is used to extract this filament; these strands are then twisted together to produce the thread for weaving.

Beautiful, breathable, and comfortable, the shimmering appearance of silk is due to the structure of the fibre, which refracts light at different angles, offering a natural glow, smooth texture, and vivid colours.

Jute

Jute

Native to tropical regions, especially India and Bangladesh, jute is a long, soft, shiny plant fibre that is spun into strong, resistant threads. Environmentally friendly, jute is a rain-fed crop with little need for fertiliser or pesticides, 100% biodegradable and recyclable. The fibre is extracted from the stem and outer skin of the plant through retting. As the plants are harvested, they are gathered together in bundles. The retting process involves placing the bundles in water to soften before stripping. After the fibre has been stripped from the plant, it is washed and laid out to dry before spinning. Fresh, rustic, and textured, jute rugs present exceptional insulating and anti-static properties.

Nettle

Nettle

Botanically considered a weed, the nettle plant has several medicinal qualities, and is also used in textiles. Indigenous to the Himalaya region, this fibre is appreciated for its softness and resistance. After the nettle has been harvested and bundled towards the end of summer, it is necessary to soften the stalks through a complex process involving water and ashes. The lye from the ashes relaxes the fibre that makes the stripping process easier. The nettle is thoroughly rinsed with clean water after stripping and spun into thread for weaving. A highly sustainable plant, nettle grows wildly and needs little care. The process to produce the nettle thread is carried out entirely by hand and does not involve chemicals.

Recycled polyester

Recycled polyester

This is a truly revolutionary fabric. The raw material comes from waste that is treated and processed to create a natural looking thread from recycled polyester.
The final quality of the thread depends on the origin of the recycled material, although they all offer great possibilities as they are suitable for both outdoor and indoor uses.

Recycled rubber

Recycled rubber

A trip to India always leads to inspiration. Reflecting on the infamous mode of transport in India and after experimenting with rubber from the inner tubes of bicycles, we managed to achieve a 100% recycled material for an iconic rug, Bicicleta. The rubber is processed and cleaned, and then used to weave in the same way as any other type of fibre. A conceptual, original and sustainable option.
