Little Field of Flowers

Read Article

Nanimarquina—In 1987, Barcelona-based designer Nani Marquina established a textile and rug design studio. Since 1993, the company’s designs have been manufactured in northern India. Marquina has devoted her career to promoting sustainable ethics in production. Her definition of “sustainable” applies both to materials (her rugs are mostly biodegradable, and one, Bicicleta, is made from recycled bike inner tubes) and to fair labor and trade practices. In 2006, Nanimarquina introduced Little Field of Flowers, the first rug by Netherlands-born, England-trained, France-based Tord Boontje.
