Wellbeing

Wellbeing is an organism of comforting textile products that support the human experience. All the items focus on tactility, materiality, craft and quality. They add warmth, softness and comfort to indoor environments, and a connection to the senses. The collection uses traditional techniques and crafted details that make the normal special.

The Wellbeing collection uses hand spun Afghan wool, nettle, jute, linen, Tussar silk as well as cork, wood, raw wool, and raw cotton carefully sourced by nanimarquina’s team, as close as possible to where the pieces from the collection are produced, using traditional craft techniques and local artisans with whom nanimarquina has worked with for a long time.

The collaboration between nanimarquina and Ilse Crawford begun in April 2017. The set criteria for the collection included natural, sustainable and local fibers, hand spun, no bleach and no dyes. These requirements set the nanimarquina team to begin a deep investigation process and start working with a wide variety of materials, leading to a conscious, human-centric, sensorial and beautiful outcome. All the innovations applied have meant a step forward in nanimarquina’s body of knowledge in rug making.

Ilse Crawford

As founder of Studioilse, together with her multi-disciplinary, London-based team she brings her philosophy to life. This means creating environments where humans feel comfortable; public spaces that make people feel at home and homes that are habitable and make sense for the people who live in them. It means designing furniture and products that support and enhance human behavior and actions in everyday life.

Hand loomed Dhurrie

The dhurrie is characterized by being a flat-structure rug, formed from the crossover between the weft and the warp strands. It can be done on both vertical and horizontal looms.

The technique offers infinite finishes and the use of different materials. Simple designs can be created or more elaborate motifs can be achieved through the use of different densities.

Warp and weft enjoy the same prominence within the design configuration; since they are evenly spaced, both are visible.

These slim and lightweight rugs usually depict geometric patterns, presenting a firm, resistant and knotless surface, which make dhurries clean and easy to maintain.
