From the inventory: Sultanabad inspired Isabella & Sophia

Isabella (left) and Sophia (right) are two modern rugs that take their design influence from Ziegler designs from the late 1800’s that were manufactured in Sultanabad, a city in Iran that was founded in 1808 and became a major center of rug production.

Ziegler & Co. was a British rug manufacturer that saw the Western demand for these Eastern designs, modifying the Persian styles to have larger patterns and larger rug sizes to accommodate Western room specifications.

The vinescroll and palmette motifs that are traditional to these Sultanabad rugs and antique Ziegler & Co. can be seen here in these two rugs we designed and made in our Central Anatolian Weavery.

Both Isabelle and Sophia are woven from the same dyed wools, but we allowed one to “sun” for months longer than the other, creating that beautiful faded quality in the lighter colored Sophia rug. Once a rug is woven in Central Anatolia, it is placed outdoors to collect the morning dew and mellow under the hot sun.

For more information on these rugs, for approvals or to see them in person at our Birmingham showroom or at High Point Market (Showroom 290), contact us!
