The Tres collection reflects nanimarquina’s passion for craftsmanship and was previously expanded in January 2017 with the Tres Stripes and Tres Textura models, as well as introducing new colors.
Now a new version is being introduced into the family: the new Tres Vegetal model, presenting a rustic style thanks to the use of jute. This hand-spun fibre was chosen due to its biodegradable nature, lightweight yet resistant and, above all, to connect with the passion of the brand for nature.
The beauty of this collection, a flat weave created in India, lies in the irregularities generated by the crossing of the fibres and their different thicknesses, but also in the shades of beige, ivory or off-white fibres.
True to her design roots, Nani Marquina launched her namesake brand in 1987, a time in which contemporary rugs were non-existent in Spain.
After studying industrial design at the Escuela Massana of Barcelona and enjoying the success of her first bespoke textile designs, Nani launched nanimarquina, a brand dedicated to the design, creation, and distribution of rugs and textile products for the home, based on values such as observation, innovation, and enthusiasm, with the goal to use traditional craftsmanship and techniques to create contemporary pieces.
In 1993, Nani Marquina embarked on a daring business venture: she moved manufacturing facilities to the north of India. The further incorporation of craftsmanship and tradition as a new design concept marked a clear difference, consolidating the brand.
Throughout the years, the brand has garnered numerous awards such as the National Design Award and the Premi Cambra a la Gestió Empresarial (Chamber Award for Design Management) in 2005, as well as several nominations for the Príncipe Felipe Award for Company Excellence. Nani Marquina has also received the International Women’s Entrepreneurial Challenge Award from the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce, a personal achievement that led to the 2007 FIDEM Award for Entrepreneurial Woman of the Year. She has enjoyed tenure as the Chairwoman of ADP (Professional Design Association), and of Red (Reunión Empresas de Diseño). From 2014 until 2019, Nani Marquina was the President of the FAD, (Foment de les Arts i Disseny), in Barcelona.
Last years she has been back to her roots: Nani has been focused on the creative side of the business. Leading the design team of the company, they've developed one of the most succesful collections of nanimarquina's history: Tres.
Elisa Padrón (Canarias, 1984) and her special sensibility for product design, makes even the most complex creative process simple.
Her intuitive and passionate approach leads her to experience craftsmanship in the first person: researching, experimenting with her hands, and comprehensively understanding different techniques, however traditional they may be.
With a tireless attention to detail, Elisa displays a keen knowledge of colour while highlighting the beauty of simplicity. She directs the in-house design team at nanimarquina, creating her own collections as well as accompanying external designers throughout their development process.
