Craftsmanship and Design
GAN is a concept firmly rooted in design and based around handmade products. GAN rugs are not merely objects – they are a system of shapes and volumes that redefine the concept of habitability. Through our continued partnership with Patricia Urquiola, our GAN rug collection is an exclusive offering of her unique designs and colorways.
Made by Hand
GAN rugs are gently made by hand, piece by piece. Each is created in India by experienced craftsmen who use natural fibers like cotton and wool to bring a designer’s vision to life.
Employing artisans in India helps develop the local economy and the communities where they are present. GAN is an active participant in child protecction programs and sponsors a women’s development project in a rural setting.
Meet Patricia Urquiola
Patricia Urquiola, designer and architect, was born in Oviedo, Spain. She now lives and works in Milan where she runs Studio Urquiola. Her work is widely known to be playful and poetic, yet pragmatic and functional, a creative combination that is the magic behind her work. She comes and goes through conventional time – rethinking, reinventing, and creating new. The effect is a powerful reminder of the past and exploration into the now, always creating a new experience for the user.
