Design by Nani Marquina, 2012.
The handcrafted Manos 1995 Rug takes its inspiration from one of the most acclaimed artists of the 20th century, Eduardo Chillida. Part of the newest collection by nanimarquina, the Manos 1995 Rug exhibits a timeless design that can be integrated into a variety of interior styles. This particular design represents Chillida's famous hands which he used to create all of his magnificent sculptural masterpieces.
Made out of 100% New Zealand wool, the Manos 1995 rug is constructed by using a Persian hand knotting technique along with 100% hand woven fibers. The particular hand knotting technique used may take longer to manufacture, but it ensures the finest quality and design for every rug produced. This low maintenance product only needs to be vacuumed once a week, making it an easy way to add the modern rug you've always wanted to your home.
This is a handmade craft product. Minor variations, in size and color, are inevitable. Do not dry clean.
Material(s): Handmade from 100% New Zealand Wool
Dimensions: 5.6 Ft. X 9 Ft.
