Overview

Design by NEL Colectivo, 2009.
By nanimarquina.

Rugs have traditionally been tools to convey messages from every culture — artistic and practical means for civilizations to express themselves. The Global Warming Rug embodies its own clear message from our time.

The Mexican NEL Colectivo utilized design to send a direct message, an invitation to reflect about the current world and its state of emergency. Global warming — represented in the solitude of one small polar bear in three dimensions, unprotected and adrift on a block of ice, in the middle of an immense sea. It is an offering of hope, the hope for a better future, a better world that is possible.

Hand-tufted of 100% New Zealand Wool with a felt bear, the Global Warming Rug is available in two sizes.

Notes:

This is a handmade craft product. Minor variations, in size and color, are inevitable. Do not dryclean.

nanimarquina: reinventing the rug

nanimarquina was founded in Barcelona in 1987, with one clear idea: to design rugs. It's a simple statement, a transparent declaration of intent that nanimarquina has made a reality by putting into practice values such as observation, innovative endeavor, communication, emotion and knowing how to contemporize traditional craftsmanship. Most nanimarquina designs have been internationally acclaimed and have been presented in museums such as MOMA in New York and Centre Pompidou in Paris.

Conscious of the profound differences between developed and developing countries, nanimarquina has always been directly involved in promoting sustainable development. nanimarquina helps boost the local economies of their manufacturing communities in India, Morocco, Pakistan and Spain, and participates in their progress by offering decent, salaried work opportunities to the inhabitants of those areas.

nanimarquina is committed to using natural, renewable and recyclable resources, such as wool, jute, cotton and silk. Traditional production methods and the use of renewable energy help to maintain and improve natural resources for use by future generations.
