Fibers

90% Hand spun Afghan Wool

Afghan wool comes from sheep grazing high in the mountains of Afghanistan. Naturally wavy, it is a very resistant material with a rough touch. Due to the curl of the wool and the irregularity in the yarn, when weaving it, it achieves an aged and unique appearance.

 

10% Emboridered New Zealand wool

Typically, New Zealand wool is known to be the whitest, cleanest, purest and most natural in the world. Its softness is due in part to the altitude and the vegetation available to the herds. It is guaranteed to be cruelty-free.

Technique

Hand loomed Kilim

Manual weaving on a vertical or horizontal loom that plays with the intersection between weft and warp.

It is characterized by being thin, hairless and with geometric motifs. High-density rugs, durable and resistant, even in the case of very light rugs.

Cleaning and care

Tips

Silhouette collection

Silhouette is a collection of rugs designed by Jaime Hayon for indoor and outdoor use that highlights the acclaimed casual style of the designer and artist.

Depicted with a delicate stroke, the illustration defines the silhouettes of several imaginary characters that intertwine and coexist in a beautiful composition. Hayon subtly introduces color through small elements brimming with personality that help to interpret each of the images. Nine faces are distributed at different angles so that the rug can be viewed from any perspective, fitting perfectly in any space.

nanimarquina introduces the embroidery on kilim technique for the first time, a laborious process handmade in Pakistan where the chain stitch embroidery adds texture and a soft volume that emphasizes the sinuousness of the illustration. Despite its delicate appearance, it is a sturdy technique suitable for both residential and commercial use. Available in two standard sizes, the indoor model also includes a tapestry piece that can be hung vertically.
