What is Ziloo

This carpet is one of the most enduring floor coverings, especially in desert areas. Unlike other Iranian handmade carpets, which are woven by wool, Ziloo is completely plant-based and it is made of pure cotton. Its yarns are made of herbs, cellulose materials so it is natural completely. In Iran carpet is a general term applied for any kind of floor covering so some believed that Ziloo could be considered as a carpet. However, Ziloo, like persian kilim and jajim, is a special kind of floor covering in Iran which is totally different from carpet.
