Black on White Manuscrit RugPrice: $1,184.00
Design by Joaquim Ruiz Millet, 2003.
In 1991, Joaquim Ruiz Millet started a novel that he would finish five years later. During his work's gestation period, a page of the unpublished manuscript gave rise to a series of objects, such as this rug, with spindly characters that move the work plane from hands to feet. Expanding it, the original becomes the abstract.
Made of hand-tufted 100% New Zealand wool, the Black on White Manuscrit Rug by nanimarquina is available in three sizes.
This is a handmade craft product. Minor variations, in size and color, are inevitable. Do not dryclean.
