About the piece

A wonderful new decorative production of hand-knotted carpets called Garous using all natural dyes and hand-spun quality wools

From 1880 to 1920 in Mahal in Central Persia the Ziegler design was created, it was an Anglo-Swiss company who put Persian Ziegler’s into production and almost all of them were exported to wealthy western homes. The Persian Ziegler’s today have become very sought after for their decorative look, they are also difficult to find in good condition and can attract very high premiums.

Sultanabad rugs are 100% hand-knotted and use hand spun gazani wool (which give the carpet texture and sheen) and natural dyes (which have slight colour change within each colour). The designs are mostly open all over design floral sprays with borders, with soft colours, they also sometimes have a faded look to give the impression of an older carpet.

Sultanabad rugs represent good value for hand-knotted carpets and will give many years of pleasure.
