Creations by nanimarquina (ES)

The Spanish carpet manufacturer nanimarquina just presented this beautiful video which describes in impressive images the production and the artisanry of their skilled workers in India.

On the basis of this premise, in 1994 several companies that imported carpets from India, Nepal and Pakistan founded the Care & Fair organisation. Its principal objective: to eradicate child labour from the carpet manufacturing industry in these areas.

nanimarquina has been a member of Care & Fair since the outset and can therefore guarantee that no child labour has been used in the production of their rugs.

nanimarquina will exhibit at this year’s Design Biennale INTERIEUR 2010 in Kortrijk.
