The Wellbeing collection from Ilse Crawford and nanimarquina marks a return to the elemental pleasures of raw material.
Comprised of two kinds of rugs, a wall tapestry, a throw rug, two cushions, and an indoor hammock, Wellbeing fulfills the aspirations of its name by putting us in touch with unaltered textiles: Afghan wool, nettle, jute, linen, Tussar silk, cork, wood, raw wool, and raw cotton—all locally sourced and hand-spun, dye- and bleach-free.
Such purity was hard won. Crawford and nanimarquina began searching for sustainable fibers and working with local artisans more than two years ago: “a deep investigation process with a wide variety of materials, leading to a conscious, human-centric, and beautiful outcome.”
The textiles are indeed a sight to behold and doubtless a pleasure to touch. The tactility of these natural fibers creates an authentic sensorial experience—a pleasure enhanced by their beauty, sustainability, and inherent support of local economies.
