Global Warming Rug by Nanimarquina
4' 8"W x 6' 8"L
Designed in Spain
Rugs have traditionally been tools to convey messages from every culture, artistic and practical means for civilizations to express themselves. This collection acts as a platform for communication, embodying its own clear message from our times. The Mexican Nel Collective discovered the possibility of realizing a non-conventional project to spread a direct message, an invitation to reflect about the current world and its state of emergency. The name of these ecological rugs says it all: global warming, represented in the solitude of one small polar bear in three dimensions, unprotected and adrift on a block of ice, in the middle of an immense sea. It is an offering of hope, the hope for a better future, a world that is possible.
- Maintenance and cleaning: Vacuuming is recommended at least once a week. Do not allow stains to dry-in and apply a suitable stain-removing solution. Do not have the carpets dry-cleaned too often. In the event that it becomes necessary, make sure that it is done by a specialized dry-cleaner.
