The term “zamin” means earth or land in Persian or Hindi, and Zamin carpets are truly carpets that appear to spring from the Indian earth. Zamins are woven in India in villages in the eastern part of Uttar Pradesh in northern India.
A Zamin is a densely-woven, heavy carpet, where the weight of the carpet is in the firmly beaten wool pile, much like an old Persian Bidjar. Zamin carpets use rich, highly-saturated vegetable dyes from roots, leaves and flowers found from within India and Nepal. The finest, longest staple New Zealand wool is used, which is hand carded and hand spun.
Zamin designs range from the more primitive, such as Gabbeh designs, to finely woven Persian geometric designs, such as Bidjar and Afshar. Zamins also include contemporary designs of many different types and inspirations.
