This rug is truly a unique piece that comes in a Ziegler Patchwork Transitional design!
Ziegler (Zeigler) is the name of a design rather than an actual city or tribe. Ziegler design rugs are sometimes known as Chobi rugs or Peshawar rugs. Ziegler rugs were designed with the western market in mind and fit perfectly into almost any home. Based on a softer version of the Sultanabad design their muted colours using vegetable dyes and simple, yet striking pattern fit well with modern neutral colour schemes and both contemporary or traditional furniture.
The “patchwork” rug is made from selected parts of different carpets or fabrics that are combined together into a single element, as a collage. Generally rectangular or square, the parts of the different carpets combined together are in excellent condition and can come from similar or totally different carpets, creating a puzzle of contrasts (both in terms of colors and designs). Although the patchwork is often only linked to classic American blankets, the technique might surprise you for its ancient story: the first patchwork carpet findings, dating to 500 years ago, come from Turkey!
