Introduction:

When it comes to the brand, Ziegler carpets are considered to be an exception to the norm; they are named after a company, rather than a village or a tribe. Ziegler was actually a designer in the former German and Austro-Hungarian Empires, who moved to Manchester, England, in the late 1800s, to establish his own designing firm. Naming it Ziegler and Company, he commissioned the development of the original Ziegler rugs back in the 1880s. 

Description:

Soon after, Ziegler and Co. expanded their operation and established a carpet manufacturing company in Arak (Sultanabad), Markazi Province, Iran. Using traditional, yet highly developed knotting methods and dying techniques, Ziegler and Co. produced bold rugs with all-over patterns and soft palettes. Their signature produce, Chobi Ziegler, developed an almost immediate following. The word “Chobi,” is the English pronunciation of the word "Choobi," which in Persian means wooden, wood-like, or something that has a wooden brown colour in it. 

Price Range and Value:

Generally, Ziegler pieces are in the same price range as Shirvans, Kazaks, and Khal Mohammads. Their larger pieces start from 10' in length, and 6' in width, for the price of $ 2000, and they go all the way to 12' in length, and 8' in width, for the price of $ 10000.
