Driven by a singular desire and a very creative background, Nani established nanimarquina in 1987 with a clear goal: to design unique and surprising handcrafted rugs for people to enjoy.
The idea of blending contemporary design with traditional rugs was well received and soon Nanimarquina embarked on the adventure of outsourcing production to those countries that offered cultural value and unlimited possibilities for rug craftsmanship – such as India and New Zealand. They are a family-owned company, pioneer in the field of modern rug design; looking for consistent innovation, handcraft techniques, and new materials. We are invested in conveying the essence of our brand, highlighting our values to produce quality rugs that blend traditional techniques and modern design. We work with local and international designers to ensure a diversity of themes and experimentation with various textures, materials and shapes. The result: one-of-a-kind Nanimarquina rugs for each of our customers. A rug for each space and emotion.
Creating unique pieces by playing with shapes, colours and textures. Rugs that people fall in love with. Immersed in a unique world of creativity from her early childhood, Nani Marquina’s father, Rafael Marquina, one of the pioneers of Spanish design, is the creator of the famous Marquina oil cruet. An icon of Spanish design, the cruet garnered the first prize during the inaugural edition of the ADIFAD Awards in 1961. This made a profound impression on Nani, fostering a deep conviction to follow in her father’s footsteps and the family tradition of design. Nani founded nanimarquina in 1987, driven by the desire to create innovative rugs. Special attention and effort have been invested in searching for quality raw materials and manufacturing processes from the very beginning; factors that enrich the aesthetics of her designs, the main reason for the brand’s commercial success. In addition, thanks to her visionary attitude, Nani Marquina collaborates with prestigious international designers to create unique collections, the first textile designer to work on the concept of designer rugs. Growth and international acclaim would continue in 2002, with the addition of Nani’s daughter, María Piera Marquina. One of the leading brands in the contemporary rug sector, the nanimarquina team is comprised of unique individuals that strive for constant development and creativity on a daily basis. Dedicated to the essence of the brand, values such as craftsmanship, traditional techniques, quality, and contemporary design are infused into every single rug. A close-knit family company with the goal to create new design experiences without forgetting the founding principal: to reinvent rugs. The nanimarquina team works side by side with Nani to create rugs that generate excitement, launching each collection to the farthest corners of the globe. Global thinking.
