100% New Zealand wool, hand-knotted & hand-woven sumak
Handmade by Nanimarquina
"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
The Rabari collection is created with 100% New Zealand wool, handmade in India with hand-knotted and hand-woven Sumak techniques.
The weaving technique used in this collection, known as hand knotted sumak, is the result of a great amount of work and imagination on the part of the Indian weavers. A thin braid is formed knot by knot, thus acquiring a distressed look, but at the same time producing a high-quality result.
Wool from New Zealand sheep is a natural, sustainable and biodegradable fiber. This beautiful wool is hypoallergenic, it is easy to care for, ages well and holds its color. It also minimized noise levels, while it creates a relaxing and comfortable environment.
