Nanimarquina Rabari Carpet
The Rabari collection is created with 100% New Zealand wool, handmade in India with hand-knotted and hand-woven Sumak techniques.
Comprised of four different rugs, the Rabari collection offers exceptional beauty through the outstanding design by Doshi Levien, a refined combination of patterns with a unique graphic sensuality. “We decided to create a series of rugs that evoke the sensual and shiny world of tribal folk embroidery of India.
We wanted our collection for nanimarquina to reference the unfinished embroideries like studies of different techniques in progress, as they gradually emerge over time.
The spontaneous compositions of the rugs embody the serendipity and freedom to improvise inherent in each step of a handmade piece. Joyful, irreverent and unique.” Doshi Levien.
