Afghan Ziegler Rugs are inspired by a type of carpet woven under western supervision by a company known as Ziegler & Co. of Manchester (a British company of Swiss origins) in the Arak region of Persia in the 1880s.
The Afghan Ziegler production reproduces the Ziegler designs in colours sympathetic to modern colour schemes. Afghan Ziegler Rugs are easy-on-the-eye, woven with soft colours, natural dyes and simple, subtle all-over floral designs.
Afghan Ziegler Rugs are the ideal furnishing choice to enhance a rooms interior decor.
Amazingly, despite the light colour scheme these rugs are incredibly durable due to the tough nature of the wool pile and wear clean in use.
