Persian Colors explores the properties of natural fibers. The carpets are chromatically composed of tonalities from the natural environment: pollen, moss, scarlet and charcoal.

Tradition and craftsmanship are the primary inspiration of this collection of flexible, soft and bright rugs that are also simple and plain. Persian Colors rugs are knitted with Persian knot and hand spun Afghan wool through a laborious manual process that enriches the fabric providing a texture of extreme softness. Each thread, each knot, transports us to the universe and the origin of rugs.


Nani Marquina

True to herself and sensing the success her designs could reap, she created her own business in 1987 despite the difficulties of the times. The company’s second generation was incorporated in 2002, consolidating its growth and international expansion. True to her design roots, Nani Marquina launched her namesake brand in 1987, a time in which contemporary rugs were non-existent in Spain. After studying industrial design at the Escuela Massana of Barcelona and enjoying the success of her first bespoke textile designs, Nani launched nanimarquina, a brand dedicated to the design, creation, and distribution of rugs and textile products for the home, based on values such as observation, innovation, and enthusiasm, with the goal to use traditional craftsmanship and techniques to create contemporary pieces. In 1993, Nani Marquina embarked on a daring business venture: she moved manufacturing facilities to the north of India. The further incorporation of craftsmanship and tradition as a new design concept marked a clear difference, consolidating the brand.

Throughout the years, the brand has garnered numerous awards such as the National Design Award and the Premi Cambra a la Gestió Empresarial (Chamber Award for Design Management) in 2005, as well as several nominations for the Príncipe Felipe Award for Company Excellence. Nani Marquina has also recently received the International Women’s Entrepreneurial Challenge Award from the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce, a personal achievement that led to the 2007 FIDEM Award for Entrepreneurial Woman of the Year. She has enjoyed tenure as the Chairwoman of ADP (Professional Design Association), and of Red (Reunión Empresas de Diseño). Starting in 2014, Nani Marquina is the President of the FAD, (Foment de les Arts i Disseny), in Barcelona.


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.
