“A study of colours, shadows and textures to achieve the perfect balance, expressing Milton Glaser’s aesthetics: sensations, perceptions and the discovery of Shakespeare in a rug.

” Nani Marquina. The result of an accidental encounter between Shakespeare, Africa and Nani Marquina, the Milton Glaser collection is based on his belief that all things are ultimately connected and the role of the artist is to discover the inevitable relationship between everything. This search for answers is sometimes difficult and at other times, a piece of cake. The “Shakespeare in Africa” rug is comprised of two elements, a portrait of Shakespeare and the textured pattern, both created by hand and combined in Photoshop. 100% New Zealand Wool


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.
