Nomads of the Orient started making carpets by hand for their own use a long time ago. They were intended for various purposes in the everyday life of the nomads. For example as a tent underlay, saddlebags or blankets. Nowadays, production often takes place in villages where the nomads settled. The quality of the carpets has remained very high and they continue to be knotted by hand in the old tradition over a period of months.

Ziegler rugs are based on the classical Persian rugs. To give them an antique look, the carpets are bleached in the sun and rubbed with stones to slightly wipe the pile. The rugs are knotted by hand in an old tradition. In addition, oriental elements are combined with a modern style that allows many people to combine an oriental carpet with their interior. Originally, a typical rug of this kind was designed in the colours cream, black, red or blue. Depending on the quality the dye is vegetable or made from chrome colours.

Afghan & Pakistan rugs

Afghan & Pakistan rugs

These hand-knotted or woven carpets come from Afghanistan and Pakistan, countries which have a far reaching tradition in the handicraft of carpets. The warm dark red shades and repetitive octagonal ornaments are very typical for this type. There are hardly noticeable differences between the regions. Interesting is the term 2Ply or 3Ply in the name of carpets. It gives an indication of the knot density and thus also of the effort involved in knotting. For example, a 3Ply Buchara has a higher number of knots per square meter than a 2Ply.

Hand-knotted carpets of high quality have long been produced in the Caucasus and Russia. The two regions look back on a centuries-long tradition of carpet production. The mostly geometrically patterned carpets may not necessarily reach the luxurious and highest standard of known Persian carpets from Nain or Tabriz, yet they are excellent rugs that are ideal for everyday use.

Indian rugs

Indian rugs

The Indian production of rugs probably began in the 16th century. It was supported by the Grand Mogul Akbar, who had Persian knotters make carpets for his palace. Nowadays, Indian rugs are produced in larger quantities and are usually inspired by traditional rugs, like by Persian or Chinese ornaments. Thus, they are inexpensive alternatives to Persian carpets. However, their quality can vary on the open market. This is an important reason why we have maintained relationships with the best Indian crafters for decades with focus on fair trade.

Chinese rugs

For many centuries traditional rugs are crafted by hand in China. For example Cathay looks back to a very long tradition in this field of handicraft. The imperial court promoted the crafting of Chinese rugs in the past. For many oriental countries the production of rugs was an important industry. Typical patterns can also be found porcelain paintings. Often floral ornaments, animals and even dragons can be found on antique Chinese rugs. We offer a broad selection of modern and traditional rugs from China.

These popular rugs are known for their slightly thicker, warm, soft yet resilient pile, as well as their rich colours and the huge variety of designs in which they are available.

Silk rugs

Silk is a class of its own. Hardly any natural material creates such enthusiasm and fascination as silk does. The softness, shine and unsurpassed elegance of silk makes every rug a stunning highlight. We are fascinated again and again how silk reflects the light differently and thus creates a beautiful play of colours on the pile. These silk carpets come with a fine to extraordinarily fine knot density.

The East is promising. Its colours and the patterns stimulate the imagination and allow us to dream. If this the case with you, a handknotted tapestry or a seating facility from Kelim is at least worth a consideration.

The East has a very special impact. The reason fort hat is difficult to ascertain. It is due to the colours, that harmonise with each other so splendidly? Is it the fascinating tradition? Probably it is the combination of all sorts of reasons. Carpets with oriental flair can hardly be compared to others in their impact to you home. Breathe a little oriental air in your home.
