BICICLETA 5'7" x 7'10" Recycled Rubber Indoor/Outdoor Area Rug by Nani Marquina - Black. The Bicicleta rug was designed by Nani Marquina & Ariadna Miquel for Nanimarquina in Spain. Nanimarquina's Bicicleta rug is made using 130/140 bicycle inner tubes, collected and processed in India. Bicicleta is hand-loomed using 100% recycled material, this durable and exclusive ecological rug champions caring for the environment. In addition to being a declaration of intentions by raising awareness about using biodegradable or recycled products, it represents a point of transgression for today’s most avant-garde spaces. This design was born through researching the possibility of using recycled rubber to create new textures. The solution arose during a journey to India: using inner tubes from bicycle tires, the most common mode of transportation there. The result: a conceptual, sustainable, new element. Bicicleta is stylishly durable for any indoor or outdoor needs; vacuum-able or wash with soap and water. And the soft gray loops feel very comfortable on bare feet so it has great appeal for any type of interior or exterior.
The Bicicleta 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.

Each rug is designed in Barcelona, Spain and crafted by master rug artisans in India, Nepal or Pakistan.
