Burgundy/Violet AFRICAN-HOUSE 100% virgin New Zealand Modern Wool Rug - Rectangular 5'7" x 7'10" / 6'7" x 9'10" / 9'10" x 13'1" Area Rug - Nanimarquina - The African House rug was designed by the esteemed Barcelona designer Nani Marquina for her distinctive namesake Spanish rug brand. This rug displays a wonderful design outlined in violet placed upon a warm and deep burgundy-like background. The color composition really works wonders. The African House rug has its origins in the fascinating murals made by members of the South African Besotho tribe on the outside of their houses. Besotho women decorate the adobe walls of their homes with plant and flower ornaments, inventing stunning decorative allegories. They are artistic expressions of prayers to their ancestors, to whom they pray for rain, sun and peace. This collection brings us the cultural symbology of this tribe, bringing their exotic exterior motifs to the interior of our homes, giving a certain ethnic touch. The relief on the wool rug reproduces the mud treatment in their murals, in ochre, earth and sand tones. The Nanimarquina African House 1 rug displays beautifully on the floor or on the wall.
The African House 1 Rug is part of the Nanimarquina area rug collection designed by the talented and very likeable Barcelona-based designer Nani Marquina. The quality of the Nanimarquina rugs is often unsurpassed; some Nanimarquina rugs are created with up to 179 thousand knots per square meter. The industry standard is usually only a fraction of that. The selection of the best materials is equally important to Nani. She selects the finest materials for her rugs such as 100% virgin New Zealand Wool, hand-spun Mohair and Persian Silk. Each rug is designed in Barcelona, Spain and crafted by master rug artisans in India, Nepal or Pakistan. Nanimarquina's rugs carry 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.
