On average, the production of a large-sized Ziegler piece, from point 0 to point 100, takes between a year (12 months) to a year and a half (18 months). This is due the lengthy manufacturing process behind the creation of these oriental beauties. To begin with, dyes must be extracted from the best of available natural resources. Some of the used material to achieve the required colours include; peels of fruits, roots of plants, skins of vegetables, tree barks, dried flowers, and shells of nuts. This perhaps, is the foundation of manufacturing high quality Zieglers.
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.
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 "Choubi," which in Persian means wooden, wood-like, or something that has a wooden brown colour in it.
