Care & Fair

Care & Fair

Founded in 1994, Care & Fair is a German association that fights against child labour and aims to support people who work in the rug manufacturing trade in India, Pakistan and Nepal. Care & Fair comprises more than 450 companies committed to improving living standards and education of boys and girls in manufacturing regions. Every member sets aside 1% of the value of its rug imports to fund Care & Fair schools, training projects, hospitals, and health programs. All nanimarquina rugs bear the Care & Fair logo, which guarantees they were produced without child labour.

Kala

Kala

Kala project was born in 2008 from a dream pursued by Nani Marquina since the beginning of her collaboration with the Care & Fair association.

In order to bring together India and design work, Nani Marquina made use of children’s most powerful tool: their imagination. She organized a drawing competition among the students of the Care & Fair schools and, using the winning original drawing; the nanimarquina design team developed and turned it into the Kala rug.
The aim of the project was to set aside €150 from every sale of the design to fund a Care & Fair school in Bhadohi (India).
Shortly after that, we accomplished the mission, around 366 boys and girls between the ages of five and fourteen are being educated since then, thanks to people around the world who have purchased the Kala rug.

Nowadays, we’re pleased to keep supporting this initiative.

Ecosheen & Jutex

Ecosheen & Jutex

To go a step further into the fight against environmental degradation, we have introduced Eco-wash & Jutex in the cleansing of our collections a biodegradable and free of chemicals washing product. This multi-enzyme formulation powers the bright colors, shine and softness of rugs woven out of fibers of animal origin (wool and silk) and fibers of plant origin (jute and cotton). By using Eco-sheen/ Jutex, nanimarquina eliminates the use of chemicals for washing, and we reduce as well, wear and tear of the product. Also, the wash solution is harmless to the labor force even if they are in contact with it. It’s beneficial to the environment since it is rich in nitrogen. It can be used for irrigation without any processing. Use of Eco-sheen/Jutex will not cause ground water pollution, and will in the long term remedy the pollution that has already taken place till date. The quantity of water used for Eco-sheen/Jutex is much lower than that consumed in the prevailing chemical washing process.

Reuse, reduce, recycle

Caring for the environment is a key preoccupation at nanimarquina. Under the international premise of “reuse, reduce, recycle”, we pay the utmost attention in caring for and preserving the environment that surrounds us. We strive to enhance our work with the use of biodegradable and recycled products, experimenting with different types of textures and fibres. Our traditional production techniques further contribute towards preserving natural resources for the use and enjoyment of future generations.
