Competition: win a Telares rug from Nanimarquina

    In our latest competition, we have teamed up with Nanimarquina to give readers the chance to win a Telares handwoven rug.

    Crafted from Afghan wool the Telares rugs have a natural appearance thanks to the irregularities of their material and being loomed by hand.

    The range features three sizes and five different colours – one reader will win a 170 x 240 centimetres rug in Indigo.

    To create the Telares rugs, a flat-woven rug handmade in Pakistan. Nanimarquina uses a combination of techniques including those used to make traditional dhurries and kilims.

    The changes in the pattern are born from the tension applied between weft, which are the crosswise threads on a loom that are passed over and under and the warp, the stationary longitudinal yarns on a loom.

    The result is “a unique rhythm and set of textures through the variation and pressure of fibres,” said the brand.
