Ziegler Floral rug without medallion with red background and beige frame
ZIEGLER RUG - is a beautiful type of hand-knotted carpets in the border area between Pakistan and Afghanistan.
The floral subject is inspired by the carpets knotted between the end of the 1800s and the early 1900s in the area of Arak, in Iran.
The current Ziegler rugs also have many features of the ancient Indian Agra rugs

Only Ghazni hand-twisted wool is used for a very bright silky effect.
