Bravo's infamous housewife Jill Zarin has made a name for herself long before holding the red apple on the hit TV show, The Real Housewives of New York. The vivacious entrepreneur is also known as the owner of Zarin Fabrics which is based in New York City and established since 1936. Having decades of both passion and experience in the textile world, Jill prides herself on "everyone deserving to have a space that they love, that they can come home to and relax" and that "It doesn’t need to cost a fortune."

Proving her sentiment, Jill has collaborated with the art inspired and traditions of rug-weaving company, Unique Loom. The collaboration created the one label; JZ for Unique Loom Collection which consists of two parts, Uptown and Downtown. Both collections feature designs inspired by Jill’s favorite city, New York, drawing on the vibrant life of numerous neighborhoods within the borough of Manhattan.

I have been a part of the design industry for decades as part of Zarin fabrics; it’s a passion. When the team at Unique Loom approached me about designing a line of rugs where I could infuse my love of contemporary design and color into a new textile medium, it was a no brainer.

The Uptown collection of rugs tend to be more subdued (much like Uptown Manhattan) and have somber patterns and colors. The collection includes famed NYC neighborhood titles such as; Carnegie Hill, Fifth Avenue, Lenox Hill, Lexington Avenue, Madison Avenue, Park Avenue and Yorkville.

DOWNTOWN Collection

The Downtown collection of rugs tend to be more colorful, artistic, and fun (much like Downtown Manhattan) with a playful vibe. Again keeping the famed NYC neighborhood titles such as; Gramercy, West Village, Chelsea, East Village, Tribeca, Greenwich Village, Nolita, Flatiron and Soho.
