Details

Although it is considered a‘weed’ botanically, the nettle has several medicinal properties and it is also used as a textile fibre. Grown mainly in Himalaya, China, India and Burma, nettle’s fibre is greatly appreciated for its softness, resistance and its similarity to vegetable silk.

The transformation process of the herb into thread requires a complex firing, mixing the fibre with ashes and spring water.

Nani Marquina

Spain, 1952

Elena Marquina, known as Nani Marquina, was born in Barcelona in 1952. After studying industrial design at the Massana School in Barcelcona, she started working with the architects Sellés-Marquina in 1973. In 1984 she made her first carpets and decided to devote herself to carpet design and set up her company, Nanimarquina, two years later. By 1988 some of her carpet creations were being exported to Germany and Japan. A year later one of her collections was selected for the shop at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

A superb colorist Marquina finds inspiration not only in nature but also in the challenge of creating something that hasn’t been done before. The designer is also a firm believer that a rug must surprise and captivate but never be too aggressive. The result is her striking depth in materials, ranging from low pile to long strands of felted wool to die-cut rose petals.

Nani Marquina is known internationally for her textiles and rugs, which have been exhibited in New York, Paris, Milan, Berlin, Osaka and Tokyo.
