    Rabari Rug Collection by Doshi Levien for Nanimarquina.

    16th June

Designed by Doshi Levien for Spanish rug maker Nanimarquina, Rabari rug collection evokes “the sensual and shiny world of tribal folk embroidery of India.” I am a real sucker for projects which clearly reference designers’ past experiences, memories, ethnic origins and iconography, particularly when brought into a contemporary context such as this. For me, this is an example of design authenticity at it’s best.
