Quill Nanimarquina

As is in nature where no two shapes are alike, nanimarquina carpets are carefully handcrafted, with the utmost attention to detail. Like a living creature, each has its own expression.

Quill is inspired by their human handiwork. Like the delicacy of a single fallen feather, or the playfulness of multiple feathers gathered together, each reveals a different expression depending on its use.

Reinventing the stodgy, conventional image of a carpet I have created a friendlier, lighter design in tune with modern day living.
