designed by NEL collectivo for nanimarquina.
rugs have traditionally been tools to convey messages from every culture, artistic and practical means for civilisations to express themselves. this collection acts as a platform for communication, embodying its own clear message from our times. the Mexican Nel Collective discovered the possibility of realising a non-conventional project to spread a direct message, an invitation to reflect about the current world and its state of emergency. the name of these ecological rugs says it all: global warming, represented in the solitude of one small polar bear in three dimensions, unprotected and adrift on a block of ice, in the middle of an immense sea. iIt is an offering of hope, the hope for a better future, a world that is possible.
