Materials: 100% Hand-spun Afghan wool, Kilim
Designed in Spain
Originating from Afghanistan's native sheep, this wool's fibre called Ghazni is famous for reaching 30 cm long.
This exceptional length and its slightly undulating and thin structure provides a high resistance and special softness. Like the other wools, it is an elastic fibre that ages well, which combined with its beauty makes it ideal for weaving carpets.
Killim is a technique which uses a manual loom to create fabrics which mix bright sections of colour. Knotted by hand, this process produces flat rugs with irregularities caused by the manual twisting of the wool thread. It is characterised by geometric motifs.
The intrinsic beauty of the natural fibres connects us with the natural world. These fibres, of organic origins such as nettle and jute, or of animal origin such as silk and wool, have been specially selected to create this collection of carpets and to reflect the plurality that nature has to offer. These fibres are twisted together to become a continuous thread, a highly laborious manual process that enriches the fabric, providing a soft and unique texture to each carpet. Each thread, each knot, transports us to the universe of the rug's beginnings. To go a step further into the fight against environmental degradation, nanimarquina has introduced Eco-wash in the cleansing of our collections: the natural washing product Ecosheen is a biodegradable and free of chemicals multienzyme washing product, while powers the bright colors, shine and softness of each fabric.
Maintenance and cleaning: Vacuuming is recommended. It is recommend that you follow the detailed maintenance and cleaning instructions on the label on the back and in the leaflet enclosed with the rug. In the event of dirt in general, wash by hand in a solution of warm water and detergent
