ZOLLANVARI INTERNATIONAL : Collections
Zollanvari introduced ‘Baluch Soumaks’ to the market for the first time in collaboration with Baluch nomads. These weavings combine kilim, soumak and pile weaving techniques to create a multi-textured jewel-like surface that gives the rugs depth and a three- dimensional appearance. They are now being woven in the southeast,, home to Afshar nomads who were originally from Turkey. Woven in wool, we have added silk to highlight the design motifs. The colour palette we have recently developed uses lighter shades such as creams and pale greens to give these rugs a modern tribal look.
