Dhiana means meditation in Sanskrit; the sinuous shapes of the rug appear from the relationship between circles of different sizes that remind me of the harmonic shapes of a Zen garden.
Esparto is a 100% natural material, with a very particular smell and touch; it can be cleaned with a vacuum cleaner, a broom or a brush.
Reclaiming this type of craftsmanship for a contemporary product means an opportunity for the survival of a traditional profession, a local know-how. The rug is made by craftswomen from the region of Murcia.
The rug is delivered with a signed and numbered image printed on paper which can be used as certificate of authenticity.
(Series limited to 750 units)
The inspiration source has been Murcia fields where big trees among cereal crops can be seen. Trees are a refuge for shepherds and flocks, a shade for country workers, and a shelter for birds and other animals. The rug is a homage to farmers who respect them. The rug reproduces this image which is very representative of many dry regions in Spain.
Martín’s experience: “I like walking along the sinuous edge of this rug as if it were a Zen garden. I have the feeling of being on a faraway island with a lot of time to think.”
