MANUSCRIT Rug by Nani Marquina Rugs

The Manuscrit rug was designed by Joaquim Ruiz Millet for Nanimarquina in Spain. The Manuscrit rug is available in a variety of sizes. The Black on White Manuscrit rug is a very beautiful and an interesting piece. The delicate manuscrit writing is bold against the immaculate white background. The Manuscrit rug was designed by Joaquim Ruiz Millet who is a famous Spanish writer, filmmaker and gallery director. The Manuscrit Rug is an expression of Joaquim Ruiz Millet's passions, and features a romantic poem that he wrote in his native Catalan. Featuring the actual handwriting of the designer, the rug is an enlargement of a page in a novel Ruiz Millet is working on. The designer plays with the dual meaning in this piece. On one hand, the rug is visually engaging and functional, while at the same time, it encourages people to walk on his words; a fragment of a work of fiction about power relationships imbued with highly charged eroticism. Faced with the challenge of blank paper, some authors capture its very essence on designer rugs. A graphic and industrial designer, a painter, a fashion designer and a writer and art gallery director create each of these four exclusive designs, in which four very personal visions of the rug as contemporary object are made clear. All have something in common: choosing the absence of color, black and white in monochrome, to intensify its identity. A dichotomy. A horizontal canvas. A work of art underfoot.

Truly exquisite designs, brilliant coloring and crisp detailing adorn the magnificent collection from Nani Marquina, designed in Barcelona, Spain. These wonderful artistic rugs will revitalize your room in an instant and will bring sophisticated elegance to any environment. Put them on your floor or display them as art on your wall.

Almost all Nanimarquina rugs are made from natural materials such as wool or jute, which makes them 100% biodegradable. Each rug is designed in Barcelona, Spain and hand-made in India, Nepal or Pakistan. Nani Marquina produces her rugs with the "Care & Fair label", an organization that since 1995 acts against child labor. All carpets made in India also bear the label of KALEEN, issued by the council of India to guarantee again that no child labor was employed.
