The intrinsic beauty of the natural fibers connects us with the natural world. These fibres, of organic origins such as nettle and jute, or of animal origin such as silk and wool, have been specially selected to create this collection of carpets and to reflect the plurality that nature has to offer. These fibers are twisted together to become a continuous thread, a highly laborious manual process that enriches the fabric, providing a soft and unique texture to each carpet. Each thread, each knot, transports us to the universe of the rug's beginnings. To go a step further into the fight against environmental degradation, nanimarquina has introduced Eco-wash in the cleansing of our collections: the natural washing product Ecosheen is a biodegradable and free of chemicals multienzyme washing product, while powers the bright colors, shine and softness of each fabric.

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.

Although it is considered a 'weed' botanically, the nettle has several medicinal properties and it is also used as a textile fiber. Grown mainly in Himalaya, China, India and Burma, nettle's fiber is greatly appreciated for its softness, resistance and its similarity to vegetable silk. The transformation process of the herb into thread requires a complex firing, mixing the fiber with ashes and spring water.
