Foundation: Although not uncommon in older or antique pieces, silk pile and silk foundations are rarely seen in new ARAK carpets. The warp is mostly cotton; the weft either cotton or wool. Most often cotton, but sometimes goat hair is used for the foundation. The wool of the rugs is hand spun, usually from the weaver's own sheep.

Where is ARAK(SULTANABAD)?

ARAK
ARAK, founded c.1800 and previously known as Sultanabad, is a center of agricultural trade. The city is also known for its rugs, pottery, metalwork, and carpets. Arak rugs are hand-woven, uniquely beautiful pieces that will enhance any room with their lively colors and warm motifs.

ARAK
The history of this town is very deep and its commercialized rug weaving industry dates back to the 17th century. Persian civilization initially began weaving rugs about 3500 years ago. Each single item in the pattern of the rugs therefore has a history of being woven in carpets for thousands of years.

Ziegler Rugs of ARAK:

In 1883, ZEIGLER and Co. of Manchester, England, established Persian carpet manufacture in ARAK (SULTANABAD), IRAN, employing designers from major Western department stores, like B. Altman & Co. and Liberty of London, to modify fanciful 16th- and 17th-century Eastern designs for the more restrained Western taste. Using highly developed dying techniques (which ZEIGLER futilely attempted to copyright) and the best artisans from the region, ZEIGLER created rugs with bold, all-over patterns and with softer palettes than the more vibrant Persian counterparts. ZEIGLER rugs developed an almost immediate following, especially among newly Western industrialists; early collectors included the Guinness family, the owners of the stout-beer manufacture, who laid them in Elveden Hall, their Suffolk, England, estate.
