The Rabari collection consists of four carpets made from 100% New Zealand wool, handmade in India by using the hand knotted and hand woven Sumak techniques.
Beyond the exceptional beauty that gives the bright colour of the wool curl, the Rabari collection is four rugs (two in beige, one in black and one in green) with an outstanding design, a canvas on which designers Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien, who form design team Doshi Levien, have designed a refined combination of rhythms with a unique graphic sensuality.
“At the very beginning of the project, we decided to create a series of rugs that evoke the sensual and shiny world of tribal folk embroidery of India. We already had in mind intricately hand crafted embroideries made by the Nomadic community of the Rabaris from Kutch region. Nipa's aunt had an amazing embroidery workshop in Ahmedabad, with 25 highly skilled craftswomen, who were all experts in hand embroidery, working with glistening mirrors, silk and cotton thread and metallic sequins amongst other non-precious materials. The women sat together on rugs on the floor, surrounded by these jewel like elements scattered around them as they worked. Often collaborating in groups, the intricate embroideries took several days to complete.We wanted our collection for Nani Marquina to reference the unfinished embroideries like studies of different techniques in progress, as they gradually emerge over time. The spontaneous compositions of the rugs embody the serendipity and freedom to improvise inherent in each step of a handmade piece; Joyful, irreverent and unique.” Doshi Levien
