nanimarquina Rabari 1 Rug
The Rabari 1 Rug is from the award winning Rabari collection of carpets from nanimarquina, awarded the Silver DELTA Award. Handmade in India using traditional Sumak techniques, it forms the ideal canvas for the outstanding designs of Doshi Levien.
The designs are a refined combination of rhythms with a unique graphic sensuality combined with beautiful bright colours of the wool curve. Rabari as a series was created to evoke the sensual and shiny world of tribal folk embroidery of India. Drawing from inspriration found in hand embroidery using glistening mirrors, silk, cotton thread and metallic sequins amongst other non-precious materials – this collection for Nani Marquina makes reference to these techniques and how the designs gradually emerge over time. "The spontaneous compositions of the rugs embody the serendipity and freedom to improvise each step of a handmade piece; Joyful, irreverent and unique.”
Available in three sizes: 170x240cm, 200x300cm and 300x400cm.
