Design Eduardo Chillida
100% hand-spun New Zealand wool, hand-woven sumak
Handmade by Nanimarquina

The artwork of Eduardo Chillida (1924-2002) currently represents one of the greatest accomplishments of the arts in the late 20th century. For this reason Nanimarquina has created the Chillida collection based on a chronological selection of his work; from Figura Humana 1948, through Dibujo Tinta 1957, to Collage 1966, that reflects the prior process to his most famous sculpture: Peine del Viento in San Sebastián.

It also includes two pictures of his famous hands: Mano and Manos from the 90s, and Gravitación from 1993 and 1994, where he creates a new relief form, the paper sculpture. All this work has been accurately translated into rugs, all of them are handmade using various techniques and different materials like wool, silk and mohair to create the textures and show the essence of his work providing the desired value.

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.

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.
