Design Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec
100% Afghan wool, Kilim technique
Handmade by Nanimarquina

The Bouroullec brothers continue their study of simplicity and elegance with their new Losanges collection. It's about reinterpreting the traditional Persian rug using the ancient kilim technique. Technically complex, the Losanges collection requires great skill as it involves combining 13 colors through the geometrical rhombus shape, a great challenge for the craftsmen of Northern Pakistan. As well as being crafted by hand, the Afghan wool is also spun by hand, which allows for some unique color tones to be highlighted which make each rhombus different and each rug a unique item.

Originating from Afghanistan's native sheep, this wool's fiber, called Ghazni, is famous for reaching 30cm long. This exceptional length and its slightly undulating and thin structure provides a high resistance and special softness. Like the other wools, it is an elastic fibre that ages well, which combined with its beauty makes it ideal for weaving carpets.

Kilim is a technique which uses a manual loom to create fabrics which mix bright sections of color. Knotted by hand, this process produces flat rugs with irregularities caused by the manual twisting of the wool thread. It is characterized by geometric motifs.

Nanimarquina was founded in 1987 focusing on offering rugs to a world that is interested in creativity, quality and innovation. Today, Nanimarquina is one of the leading companies in the contemporary rugs sector. Under the premise of "reuse, reduce, recycle", they pay the utmost attention to caring for and preserving the environment that surrounds us. All of their rugs are hand made in countries with great traditions of craftsmanship. Nanimarquina also guarantees that no child labor is used in the manufacturing of their rugs. They also collaborate actively with organizations to further improve standards of living for those directly involved in the process of producing their rugs.

The Losanges rugs are handmade with a kilim technique using 100% Afghan wool. This collection can be made in custom sizes respecting the original proportions of the standard size.
