Stardust presents the Nanimarquina Rabari 1 Rug by Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien, a beautiful combination of old world textile craft and modern graphics. For almost 1,000 years, the Rabari have roamed the deserts and plains of what is today western India. The Rabari women dedicate numerous weeks to create these exquisite area rugs, a vital and evolving expression of their crafted textile tradition. The Rabari collection by Nanimarquina consists of three carpets made from 100% New Zealand wool, handmade in India by using the hand knotted and hand woven Sumak techniques. Beyond the exceptional beauty that gives the bright color of the wool curl, the Rabari are three rugs (two in beige and one in black) with an outstanding design, a canvas on which Doshi Levien have designed a refined combination of rhythms with a unique graphic sensuality. The tribal Rabari Rugs for nanimarquina evokes the sensual and shiny world of tribal folk embroidery of India.
