Zilou

Zilou is one of the oldest types of handmade carpet in Iran and has been woven in Meybod (55KM to Yazd) for many years.It was used as the carpet by Iranians not so long ago and was exported from Meybod to many cities of Iran also neighbor countries. But Zilou was obsoleted with the arrival of machine woven and synthetic fiber carpet. However, Zilou has unique characteristics compared to other types of Iranian handmade carpets.  Zilou is made of plants and it has some important characteristics which are so advantageous for human environment and health. Unlike other Iranian handmade carpets, which are woven by wool, Zilou is completely plant based. Zilou does not have lint, so it does not produce aerosols. Physicians insist on using it for child, elders and the ones with respiratory disease.

As its yarns are made of herbs, cellulose materials and are completely natural, it doesn’t cause skin allergy and it has been recommended for the ones with skin allergy.
