DescriptionContemporary spirit and traditional methods... Since it began in 1987, the development of nanimarquina has been based on a very clear idea: the passion for designing rugs.
Topissimo rug, clearly inspired on polka dots, is born from the exploration of a third dimension in rugs, which has been done by converting the polka dots into volume. The result are a series of practically flat rugs with a different touch provided by the coloured polka dots that stand out, giving the impression of movement that varies according to the lighting.
nanimarquina has been designing rugs paying by special attention to the research of rawmaterials and manufacturing processes. Topissimo is hand tufted. It's a manual method carried out with the aid of a pistol-like device. When actuated, it fires and then cuts a portion of the wool, inserting it into a cotton cloth base, on which the pattern has been previously marked. The wool is fixed to the base by means of latex.
Topissimo rug is available in two dimensions and three colours.
