The weaving of Zeigler rugs began in the Arak provence, however, they are now made all over the Persian region. Zeiglers have re-introduced vegetable dyes back into Persian & Oriental weaving after the popular use of chemical dyes since the start of the 20th century.

These roaming individuals had a prepared supply of fleece from their sheep. The principal floor coverings were presumably straightforward creature pelts. Yet, at some early purpose of human improvement, weaving was imagined. It is trusted that the principal hitched heap covers maybe looked like creature pelts with long heap shag. Much like the present Turkish tulu carpets, these early woven "pelt" floor coverings were warm covers and bedding.  

In spite of the fact that fleece is utilized to make felts for tents and level woven materials all through Central Asia, it is just the more western clans that seemed to build up the more perplexing tied heap method.
