Modern Persian Carpet
In cooperation with contemporary designers and creatives, nanimarquina has produced traditional carpet art with a modern design since 1987.
For the Losanges collection, the designers and brothers Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec are responsible for the simple and yet elegant design reflected in the rug. The Losanges Collection is a re-interpretation of the traditional Persian carpet which incorporates the well-known Kilim technique.
The traditional production of such rugs demand a special kind of expertise. Altogether, 13 different colours were combined for every carpet constituting a huge challenge for the craftsmen of northern Pakistan where the carpets were produced. The rugs were not only made by hand but even spinning the wool was a manual process, so that every carpet is a unique piece of craftsmanship.
