Ziegler carpets are famous due to a smart Swiss businessman who In 1883 used his company Ziegler and Co, of Manchester, England to establish a Persian carpet manufacture in Sultanabad Persia. They employed designers from major western department stores such as A B. Altman & Co of New York and Liberty, to modify 16th- and 17th-century Eastern designs for the more restrained western taste. Using highly developed dying techniques, and the best artisans from the region. The Ziegler Co created rugs with bold, decorative all-over patterns and with softer palettes than their vibrant Persian counterparts. Taking the small intricate patterns of finer persian carpets and enlarging the floral motifs to use on these Zieglers.
