Zikzaklı Blanket & Throw
Zikzaklı is our 100% cotton chevron design Turkish Blanket & Throw. With its striking zigzag pattern, we’ve named it ‘Zikzaklı’ which means ‘zigzag’ in Turkish. The traditional flat-woven chevron design has been an indispensable part of traditional and historic Turkish textiles for centuries. Beautifully soft and in a range of bright and pastel colours Zikzaklı is one of our most popular blanket & throw designs.
Woven by artisans on semi-automatic looms and each tassel is carefully twisted and knotted by hand. Our blankets and throws or pike (pee-kay) as they are called in Turkey, are a great accessory for the home. The beautifully soft draping cotton makes it a perfect sofa throw, wrap it around you and snuggle down on cold winter days and it's big enough to cover a king size bed.
So, who is our Zikzaklı blanket and throw weaving partner?
Our Zikzaklı blankets and throws are sourced by our good friend and weaving partner Bekir. They are woven by his team of artisan weavers in Buldan in the Aegean region of Turkey. Buldan is legendary in Turkey for its cotton growing and weaving industry. It is rumoured that the weaving culture here is 7000 years old. Its woven textiles are long lasting due to the strongly spun quality cotton threads. On our first peshtemal and pike ( pee-kay) shopping trip to Buldan we were shown how the cotton threads were spun and dyed ready for weaving the famous Turkish peshtemal.
Zikzaklı blankets and throws are woven in over 15 colours, so when we visit Bekir and begin the task of trying to choose colours for Pazaar we are like children in a sweet shop, with so much choice, we want to take them all home!

Because our Turkish blankets and throws are hand woven you may occasionally find tiny thread pulls and knots in the fabric. This is because during the weaving process threads sometimes catch in the loom and the weavers simply snip the loop and then either push the loose threads back into the weave or knot them up. At Pazaar we think this all adds to the character and uniqueness of each of our blankets and throws….no one blanket is the same as the other. We endeavour to check all our products before we send them out to customers, but very occasionally a little knot or pulled thread will slip by us. If this happens and you want to return or exchange your throw this is absolutely fine. Please read through the Pazaar Returns Guidance here and we will be more than happy to exchange your blanket and throw.
