300 x 201 cm


Contemporary Sultanabad carpet in the tradition of the 19th-century Persian Sultanabad carpets. They came to be known as “Ziegler carpets”, so named  after the Manchester company of Ziegler & Co., which was a major importer as well as producer of this type of decorative carpet with their open field of floral designs. For another, recently acquired carpet with a similar pattern and  a pale colour scheme, see on this website.

Sultanabad carpets are still very popular with interior designers and private individuals who are looking for an understated, elegant feel to their homes.

The pile is naturally dyed wool worked on a cotton foundation.
