In one of many visits to her Indian collaborators, when observing a sample of wool fibres grouped by tones, Nani Marquina visualised the embryo of one of the firm's most emblematic designs, and, possibly, the design that she herself would choose if she had to choose which child she loved most: Cuadros. Twenty colours forming a magic checkerboard of vibrant colours that create a rhythmic sensation of movement on this checked rug. This design, born from a seemingly accidental combination of shades, actually follows a very specific linear sequence. A decorative melody.
Manual method carried out with the aid of a pistol-like device. When actuated, it fires and then cuts a portion of the wool, inserting it into a cotton cloth base, on which the pattern has been previously marked. The wool is fixed to the base by means of latex. It allows for elaborate designs but not precise curved ones.
