Jungle Beat 1, Gabbehs Flora & Fauna, 172 x 240cm Our first design influenced by the preservation of our natural environment and celebrating the diversity of its vegetation establishes the natural rhythm and movement of leaves and plants against the ruthless industrial stripes representing urbanization. Very decorative carpet with a message, it is designed by Zollanvari Studio, inspired by the struggle between urban development and preservation of our natural environment. The finest mountain wool in the Zagros Mountains creates a textured, double-layered pattern in bright greens on a black and white field - all dyed with natural plant dyes.
A select team of expert carpet designers work for Zollanvari in Shiraz creating the detailed cartoons for all our creations. The ‘Z Studio’ team develop concepts created by Reza Zollanvari or inspired to push the boundaries of carpet design and weaving techniques – from the minimalist development of tribal Gabbehs to the innovative re-invention of classical patterns seen in the extended Designer Isfahan Collection. As we state regularly: “ The art of carpet making has always exemplified the expression of a culture and a way of life, and as a result our use of pattern, colour and symbolism has been constantly evolving.” Our innovative designer creations currently include Celadon, Classical Garden, Vase and Floral Cartouches.
