The History of Modern Ziegler Rugs

Most rug types are usually named after their region of origin – and although the weaving of these pieces first became prominent in the Arak region of Persia – they are actually named after the Manchester, UK Company, Ziegler & Co – who began manufacturing replica Persian carpets from 1883.

Copying the patterns of traditional Iranian rugs but using softer color palettes to make them appeal more to Western buyers, the term ‘Modern Ziegler’ soon became a catch all for this particular style of design. These rugs then went on to be produced and gain popularity in many countries around the world.

Many Modern Ziegler rugs are now hand knotted in traditional artisan areas of Afghanistan and Pakistan – with the Farsi language lending them their aforementioned alternate name of ‘chobi’ (which means ‘wood’), and pertains to the organic dyeing process that produces the more muted colors of contemporary designs.

Great to look at in any room of the house, very durable and made using only top quality materials and artisan labor – RugKnots Modern Ziegler rugs will add a touch of traditional Persian charm to any modern, contemporary home.
