A fanciful pomegranate tree in warm luscious colours is a quintessential design in the gamut of Zollanvari Studio creations. The pomegranate is a symbol of spirituality across many faiths and beliefs… the promise of fruitfulness and eternal life - the fruit-tree growing in the gardens of Paradise. The 'Tree of Life' is a mystical and magical tree well known throughout many cultures, dating back to ancient times. As the source of life, the roots and branches of the tree acknowledge Mother Earth and Father Sun. It is a full recognition of the life that supports it, and its spiritual origins.
Trees, flowers and animals (principally lions) are design themes that are used by tribal women to weave some of Zollanvari’s most original Gabbehs. The weavers are given patterns and colour ranges (often inspired by ancient and archaic patterns such as the ‘Tree of Life’) but have a free hand in producing these works of woven art using their imaginations and the traditional design vocabulary passed down through each new generation of weavers. This makes each Gabbeh unique and individual. Flora & Fauna design Gabbehs are also available in Amaleh and Kashkuli qualities, as well as Luribaft and Bulurbaft.
