Ziegler rugs and carpets

The Ziegler company was founded in the late nineteenth century in Manchester England. It began the manufacture of rugs and carpets in the Persian city's of Tabriz and Sultanabad. These rugs and carpets were sold as Ziegler's and woven deliberately for the western market. Original antique Ziegler rugs and carpets are highly prized by interior designers and can achieve very large prices if in good condition. The modern Ziegler is a very different article being produced on the boarder between Afghanistan and Pakistan. These rugs and carpets are woven in very soft colours and try to replicate the designs of the antique Ziegler's. Also known in the trade as Chobi the production is plentiful and relatively good value.
