Zeigler Pattern Carpets

Ziegler (Zeigler) is the name of a design rather than an actual city or tribe. Ziegler design rugs are sometimes known as Chobi rugs or Peshawar rugs. A German company based in Manchester (England), Ziegler and Co. commissioned the development of the original Ziegler rugs back in 1883. Using leading designers and master weavers from Iran and Europe, Ziegler and Co. managed to create a design using softer palettes than those typically found in Iran. Based on a softer version of the Sultanabad design their muted colours using vegetable dyes and simple, yet striking patterns make these rugs very attractive an desirable.

The weaving of Zeigler rugs began in the Arak provence, however, they are now made all over the Persian region. Most new Ziegler designs are crafted in Afghanistan and labelled Chobi (which translates in Farsi to wood, a reference to their natural colour created by the vegetable dye). Today Ziegler rugs are known as Ziegler even though they are now made by Persian, Afghan and Pakistani artisans.


Ziegler rugs are argueably the most popular and sought after handmade rugs in the world today due to their gentle tones and softer floral patterns.
