This is a double-sided flatweave woven in two colours on a vertical wooden loom with a highly complex weaving structure (supplementary warps and wefts). The motifs used in Zillus are geometric and abstract. Our Zillus are made of wool yarns instead of the traditional cotton ones and complete our innovative and extensive Flatweaves collections. Our Zillus are designed exclusively by the Iranian designer Soheila Shayegan based in Cyprus and are available in custom sizes and colour combinations.
Abstract designs are Gabbeh classics. Zollanvari have produced modern versions of these classics that have won recognition worldwide, including various Carpet Design Awards at DOMOTEX: ‘Broken Waves’ was named Best Modern Design in 2009 and ‘Mirage’ Best Modern Design Superior in 2010. Abstract & Plain Gabbehs are available in both Amaleh and Kashkuli qualities. We also offer carpets in natural colours (undyed wool) and single colours with a mesmerizing abrash effect in our Shekarlou range, which is woven by Turkmen tribes in northern Iran. The Shekarlou carpets are lighter due to the use of a single weft between rows of knots.
