Zollanvari introduced ‘Baluch Soumaks’ to the market for the first time in collaboration with Baluch nomads from eastern Iran. These weavings combine kilim, soumak and pile weaving techniques to create a multi-textured jewel-like surface that gives the rugs depth and a three- dimensional appearance. They are now being woven southeast of Shiraz, home to Afshar nomads who were originally from Turkey. Woven in wool, we have added silk to highlight the design motifs. The colour palette we have recently developed uses lighter shades such as creams and pale greens to give these rugs a modern tribal look.
Two new collections that represent a fusion of various tribal traditions – that of Berber carpets of the Beni Ourain people and Zigorat carpets of the Fars region of Iran – will be launched in 2017. Our new Maghreb’i Zigorat carpets combine the style and quality of the weavings of the southern Iran’s nomads with Berber designs from the Rif Mountains region of Morocco. The Zigorat Pelt Collection fuses the technique of Zigorat carpets with high pile and flatwoven (kilim) ends, the design motifs of traditional Gabbehs and the animal pelt effects of Berber rugs. Both collections are designed for contemporary interiors.
