Rabari rug by Nipa Doshi & Jonathan Levien for Nanimarquina.
Inspired by old fashioned rugs, Nanimarquina recovers the essence of the rug, both in its texture and in its use. For the desert nomads, a house is built on a rug, as rugs originally served to protect people from the ground. They represented an object of daily use; as well as providing comfort, they also defined the space.
Over time, the rug has become a decorative element and a vehicle for cultural messages. Inspired by sensual and ornate Indian tribal folk embroidery, the Rabari rug is crafted with 100% New Zealand wool. Each rug is hand-knotted and hand-woven in India using the traditional Sumak technique.
Available in three sizes and a choice of two designs. See images above for examples.
