Ziegler Rugs, also known as Peshawar Rugs or Chobi Rugs, are a variety of Classic Rugs. Unlike other Persian Rugs, its name is not based on a city or tribe; instead, it is the name of a particular design pattern and weaving style.
A company, Ziegler and Co., based on Manchester (England) produced a softer and subtle form of the Persian rugs with the help of expert weavers from Iran and Europe in 1883. The company called this product Ziegler rugs which became a hot commodity in the markets.
Initially, Ziegler Rugs were produced in Arak city of Iran, but weavers are making these rugs in many parts of the world these days. Ziegler and Co. is not producing all these rugs, but they are still called Ziegler Rugs due to the similar pattern and design.
The producers of Ziegler Rugs use wool with a cotton base to make them and sometimes silk to give them an extravagant look. The use of wool provides them with higher quality, smooth finishing and long life.
To colour these rugs, weavers use natural dyes made from plants and vegetables from the surrounding regions. Most of these Zieglers contain soft shades paired with a darker background to compliment finely weaved designs on the carpet.
After colouring them, the weavers put them in the sun for several days to give them an antique appearance and this process is called stone washing which results in soft colours for a distinct finish.
