Silhouette is a collection of rugs designed by Jaime Hayon for indoor and outdoor use that highlights the acclaimed casual style of the designer and artist.
Depicted with a delicate stroke, the illustration defines the silhouettes of several imaginary characters that intertwine and coexist in a beautiful composition. Hayon subtly introduces color through small elements brimming with personality that help to interpret each of the images. Nine faces are distributed at different angles so that the rug can be viewed from any perspective, fitting perfectly in any space.
nanimarquina introduces the embroidery on kilim technique for the first time, a laborious process handmade in Pakistan where the chain stitch embroidery adds texture and a soft volume that emphasizes the sinuousness of the illustration. Despite its delicate appearance, it is a sturdy technique suitable for both residential and commercial use. Available in two standard sizes, the indoor model also includes a tapestry piece that can be hung vertically.

This technique stems from the basic concept of manual sewing.
Carried out with a different thread than the base, each small and precise stitch creates a pattern that is defined on a flat woven surface. This base can be either a kilim or a dhurrie.
The characteristic of this technique creates visual decorative motifs in relief.
