More about the provenance Ziegler / Chobi | Iran

This is a "Ziegler" rug of new manufacture. In 1883 a Swiss man by the name of Ziegler founded an import company in Manchester, England and at the same time a rug manufactory in Sultanabad (today: Arak), Iran. In this manufactory they produced rugs of high quality in beautiful tone in tone pastel colors and allover designs inspired by Mahal and Farahan designs which were made mainly for the European taste. The success and the demand were huge and "Ziegler" became an international trademark and a guarantee for beautiful high quality rugs. Antique Ziegler rugs today reach record breaking auction prices especially in the USA. Since a number of years these antique Ziegler designs are being reproduced in Iran, Pakistan and Egypt with various grades of quality. In this case this Persian made rug is of very high and durable quality and we offer it with pleasure.

The wool of this rug has been dyed with vegetable dyes only which became very rare in Oriental rugs. Since ca. 1850 synthetic dyes found their way into carpet production. Ever since they replaced natural vegetable dyes more and more also due to the fact that the production of vegetable dyes is very time consuming and difficult. But the "aura of genuineness" can be reached to its full extent with vegetable dyes only. Vegetable dyes are made from leaves, flowers, branches, fruits and roots. They give Oriental rugs a particularly harmonic look. In general Oriental rugs "age" better and more beautifully with vegetable dyes than with synthetic dyes plus they increase a carpet's value. Most of today's production is made with synthetic dyes which makes this rug an even more desirable piece. Unfortunately many rugs in the market are being labelled as being vegetable dyed which in many colors is simply not true which damages the reputation of the carpet industry altogether.
