Ziglar & Chubi

Zeigler and Co. a firm of Manchester, England, exported carpets from Persia (Iran) for a period from late 19th century to early 20th century. During this era, they commissioned many weavers in central and north west Iran to produce carpets in colors and designs that were more suitable for their western markets. Today such carpets that are generally called Ziegler are rare and very collectable.

The carpets that are sold today as Chubi or Ziglars are reproduction of such rugs in colors and design, very similar to the original ones. The material used are; good hand-spun wool and mostly vegetable dyes. New Ziegler carpets are generally woven by Afghan weavers in northern Pakistan or southern Afghanistan in recent years. Good material and firm knots make them very durable decorative carpets.
