Unique Loom Teams with Real Housewives NYC Star for Area Rug Collection
Manufacturer and Oriental area rug house Unique Loom is partnering with Zarin Fabrics principal and Bravo TV’s “Real Housewives of New York City” star Jill Zarin to develop a new line of rugs called “Manhattan” that draws inspiration from New York neighborhoods and her hometown city.
“I have worked in the textile world throughout my life from the beginning of my career to working with Bobby (Zarin, her husband) at Zarin Fabrics to developing my own line of bedding,” said Zarin.
“Immersing myself in the possibilities of rug design felt like a natural progression. Unique Loom has such vast capabilities to bring my visions to life that it was a natural fit,” Zarin continued.
Zarin Fabrics is a New York City-based resource for upholstery and drapery fabrics and a supplier of furniture and home furnishings. The 80-year-old company is family-owned and -operated for three generations.
Unique Loom has offices and warehouses in Iran, Switzerland, Germany, Turkey and the U.S., where it operates a state-of-the-art warehouse facility with an inventory of 500,000 rugs in stock that are ready to ship.
The new Jill Zarin Manhattan Collection for Unique Loom is expected to launch this fall during the New York Home Fashions Market and will feature patterns drawn from the city’s numerous neighborhoods within the borough.
