This is the Tumbuctú rug from the Glaoui collection, a piece available in two sizes and made using a complex artisanal method that alternates three types of techniques. The different textures and volumes of its motifs are accomplished through hand-knotting, flat weaving and embroidery -a laborious method of Moroccan origin from which the collection takes its name.

This model is the most colorful version of Tumbuctú, woven with 100% virgin wool yarns in green, lilac and indigo tones, among others. As an accent, the rug presents original braided fringes.

A complex traditional Moroccan technique brought to a different aesthetic dimension by designer Sandra Figuerola, who was inspired by the colors, graphics and topographies of African and Indian origin for her motives.


GAN spaces are collections meticulously constructed from innovative concepts and artisanal production methods. Suggestive proposals that, stemming from a rug, are capable of bringing to life a whole family of modules and accessories with which to design an environment or “space”. A set of designs linked together, designed to project stimulating and contemporary atmospheres with an open, flexible and casual configuration.


After training in Fine Arts at the San Carlos School in Valencia, Sandra Figuerola directed her professional career towards graphic design. In 1984 he founded La Nave collective with ten other designers, a studio that was a benchmark of Valencian design until its dissolution in 1991. Afterward, she continued to work in partnership with other designers as well as independently, developing her activity in various design subjects: graphic, industrial and textile. She has stood out specifically in the field of graphic design, publishing and corporate identity -together with Marisa Gallén, she designed the GANDIABLASCO logo. Aside from continuing her work as an independent designer, she has founded the Hup Hotels interior design studio.
