Ziegler Mahal Rug


In the late nineteenth century the Arak region of Persia catered especially to western markets, with the the most famous, the English firm of Ziegler & Company established in Sultanabad and became directly involved in the design and manufacture of the finest Mahal or “Sultanabad” carpets.  The color selected for these rugs were meant to appeal to the English tastes of the time, but they remain popular to this day all over the world.


This rug is designed as a classic Persian carpet of the era, except that the colors used: Tomato red, olive green, mustard yellows, and the brighter hue of indigo have been selected to appeal to the European eye.
