Hand-knotted rug in wool, pile height 8mm, produced in India, designed by Marta Laudani & Marco Romanelli for Nodus. Colors shown only. Custom sizes available.
Jamil – Designed by Marta Laudani & Marco Romanelli for the prestigious brand Nodus, this rug encloses the strong manufacturing traditions of India, and the genius of award winner international designers.
Nodus is a craft workshop with a cultural plan: the oldest traditions and knowledge in the art of carpet design are reinterpreted using the vision of the most innovating Designers and Architects, producing only unique pieces, promoting through events and publications in order to spread the knowledge to all about the new shapes and forms of a piece that has accompanied man since antiquity.
Craftsmanship: Il Piccolo has selected from the best producers in six countries of the world (Nepal, Pakistan, India, Turkmenistan, China and Turkey) visiting them one by one, verifying materials, techniques, expert craftsmen and ethical production.
Each carpet from Nodus will be a unique piece, entirely made by hand, including its packaging.
The spirit of the carpets is captured in dynamic and organic forms, like putting together a puzzle, assumes irregular profiles or takes inspiration from contemporary and everyday products such as fabrics, tablecloths, books and maps.
All the rules are torn up, except one: The hand weaving, knot by knot.
Whether you purchase or only appreciate the quality of a piece from Nodus, you can be assured that the carpet has been produced with the utmost respect, first and foremost for human rights, and the right to good working conditions and fair compensation.
