This kilim (flatweave) collection was also developed by SoFar SoNear for Zollanvari, injecting a touch of Italian style by combining a traditional weaving technique with familiar motifs from Roman iconography – a true fusion between East and West.  Handwoven since ancient times across many cultures, kilims were principally made for indigenous use.  In modern times they have also enjoyed a unique appeal as collectible and decorative ‘floor tapestries’. What makes our project so unique is the use of sophisticated UV printing to transfer the photographic images onto the kilims – innovation and tradition, modernity and history, representing the two faces of the times we live in. WINNER: Domotex CDA 2013 Best Innovation.

Mission Statement Zollanvari carpets embody the spirit of Persian carpet design and weaving – an extraordinary art form that has been treasured across the world for more than 2,000 years.
