The undulating hills at the base of the Zagros mountains are the landscapes that instruct the design of this kelim. It succeeds in being realistic and abstract at the same time. The special light of the region is captured with the ‘abrash’ and the use of ‘lazy lines’. This creation was first produced as a Gabbeh (pile carpet) in 2017 and entered for the Carpet Design Awards. We have updated and refreshed it for 2021 and have produced as a flatwoven floorcovering for contemporary interiors.
Our Landscape collection is an integral part of the Zollanvari Gabbeh range. The majority are in Kashkuli quality, woven by Ghashgha’i nomads from the Fars Province, who are renowned for extremely fine carpets such as Kashkuli Bibibaff and Wasir Machsus. With this in mind we turned to them for the extremely demanding production of our modern Kashkuli Gabbehs. The designs and symbols used are rooted in the old Gabbeh design canon that Zollanvari have reinterpreted with a modern twist and to suit modern interiors and sensibilities.
