Wellbeing is an organism of comforting textile products that support the human experience. All the items focus on tactility, materiality, craft, and quality. They add warmth, softness, and comfort to indoor environments and a connection to the senses. The collection uses traditional techniques and crafted details that make the normal special.
The Wellbeing collection uses hand-spun Afghan wool, nettle, jute, linen, Tussar silk as well as cork, wood, raw wool, and raw cotton carefully sourced by nanimarquina’s team, as close as possible to where the pieces from the collection are produced, using traditional craft techniques and local artisans with whom nanimarquina has worked with for a long time.
The collaboration between nanimarquina and Ilse Crawford begun in April 2017. The set criteria for the collection included natural, sustainable and local fibers, handspun, no bleach, and no dyes. These requirements set the nanimarquina team to begin a deep investigation process and start working with a wide variety of materials, leading to a conscious, human-centric, sensorial, and beautiful outcome. All the innovations applied have meant a step forward in nanimarquina’s body of knowledge in rug making.
