bicicleta rug

Design Nani Marquina & Ariadna Miquel
100% recycled rubber, hand loomed
Handmade by Nanimarquina

Made using 100% recycled material, this exclusive rug champions caring for the environment. In addition to being a declaration of intentions by raising awareness about using recycled products, it represents a point of transgression for today's most avantgarde spaces.

The design for the Bicicleta rug was born through researching the possibility of using recycled rubber to create new textures. The solution arose during a journey to India: using inner tubes from bicycle tires, the most common mode of transportation there. The result: a conceptual, sustainable, new element.

The idea for the 100% recycled material was thought up after a trip to India, when it was decided to experiment with recycling the rubber from bicycle inner tubes. Once it has been processed and cleaned, the rubber is used for weaving in the same way as any other type of thread. The result is rugs that are conceptual, sustainable and highly original.

The Bicicleta rug is made using a manual weaving process by handloom. The thread is fastened to the warp, wrapping it around a spindle that determines the height of the rug's strands. This technique permits a wide range of finishes, from simple, delicate short-strand shag or loop rugs to more elaborate textures with various materials.

Nanimarquina was founded in 1987 focusing on offering rugs to a world that is interested in creativity, quality and innovation.
