Neri&Hu takes inspiration from the tile patterns of Shanghai streets, a place where life literally happens.

The name of the collection corresponds to Jie 街, the Chinese character that embodies the essence of a city: the constant movement, dynamism and frenetic activity. The result is an eclectic hand-tufted rug presenting different pile heights and finishes, made of 100% new wool. “The character “Jie” is made up of a radical and a phonetic character. The ancient ideograms of the Chinese Jie character depicts on one side the street as an intersection, evoking “life” at the crossroads, while the center portion of the character is made up of two “earth” characters whose ideogram shows a clay on potter’s wheel... a connection to the ceramic colors used by Neri&Hu in the series.”, according to Neri&Hu. This piece was originally created for the Das Haus installation curated by Neri&Hu at IMM Cologne 2015. The success of the rug prompted the decision to include it in the product catalogue.


Driven by a singular desire and a very creative background, Nani established nanimarquina in 1987 with a clear goal: to design unique and surprising handcrafted rugs for people to enjoy.
