Inspired by traditional Persian rugs, Peshawar Zieglar rugs are made by skilled artisans in the city of Peshawar in North Eastern Pakistan. Although they look antique in appearance, these rugs are in fact newly manufactured to emulate the beauty and finish of their ancient counterparts. Read More
Intricate Persian Rug Design
With An Indulgent European Touch
Also called ‘chobi’ rugs – the word for wood in the Farsi language – these rugs are characterized by their muted, earthy tones – a look which in the modern version is created by hand stone washing and leaving the rugs to bleach out in natural sunlight.
Luxuriously soft and extremely durable, our hand knotted Peshawar Ziegler’s are made using the finest New Zealand wool and are colored with all natural organic dyes. Predominantly beige in coloring, this style of rug also often features neutral browns, reds and blues – with repeating floral patterns a key design signature.
Peshawar Rug Artisans
While not an historic center of ancient rug making in Pakistan, the city of Peshawar on the Afghan border has become a contemporary hub of high quality rug making – with artisans producing top standard hand knotted weaves in the Persian and Central Asian style traditions.
While drawing upon the coloring and patterns of antique rugs, contemporary Peshawar pieces incorporate modern design motifs and also feature more vibrant color tones than older rugs.
As skillfully crafted replicas, modern Peshawar Ziegler rugs owe the second part of their name to the British rug making company, Ziegler & Co, who started producing contemporary rugs in the Persian style in 19th Century Manchester.
