  • Notes:
  • Peshawar Rugs are beautiful and elegant rugs that combine the rich designs of antique Peshawar Rugs with subdued colors that match most decorations. The name used to identify these rugs can sometime cause confusion, as Peshawar rugs are also known as Chobi rugs, Chobi Peshawar rugs or sometimes Ziegler rugs. Woven by Afghan weavers in the Peshawar regions of Pakistan, Peshawar rugs echo the rugged terrain that they are manufactured in. These rugs are knotted using locally available wool that is completely spun by hand. The colors are all obtained from natural vegetable dyes. The rugs have a fine knot and the designs are influenced by the Kazak and the Caucasian Shirvan styles. The capital city of the Northwest Frontier province in Pakistan, Peshawar is located on the Pakistan – Afghanistan border. Although it is now as famous as a significant carpet manufacturing center, it wasn’t always so. Because of its location at the border, this city was at first an important center for trade and commerce in the region.
