Nanimarquina was established in 1987 with the singular purpose of designing ‘special, visually surprising rugs for people to enjoy.’ With only traditional rugs available in Spain at the time, the idea of turning the classic rug into something contemporary was visionary, and soon grew in popularity. The brand works closely with a variety of designers both locally and abroad, creating unique pieces that play with shapes, colours, and textures. Headquartered in Barcelona, nanimarquina outsources its production to developing countries whose culture is deeply connected to the processes used to make rugs, like hand-knotting, hand-looms, and hand-weaving. Through this nanimarquina marries its values of creativity and quality with social responsibility, aiding growing economies, providing opportunities, and improving living standards for the local people.
