*Ziegler & Co. was a Manchester-based Anglo-Swiss producer and distributor of Persian carpets in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The company had workshops in Tabriz and Sultanabad (now Arak), and it supplied retailers such as Liberty & Company and Harvey Nichols.
The company's designs were modified (often substantially so) versions of more traditional Persian designs, and it used the latest dying techniques and employed the best artisans from the area. The company's carpets tended to have bolder all-over patterns and softer palettes than the livelier traditional Persian carpets.
"Ziegler carpets" long ago became a term used to refer to this style of carpet. Modern-day Ziegler-style carpets are being produced in many countries. Original Ziegler carpets and old carpets with similar designs are often highly valued by collectors. (Wikipedia).

Owner Gerry Mohan has a wonderfully quirky shop in Berlin, Germany's capital and a vibrant destination.  When he found his shop, with only four rooms, back in 2010/11, it was apparently very much in need of bringing into the 21st century, but Gerald decided to keep it interesting and simply tore down the wallpaper to reveal the aged and appealing worn look walls. Today he still displays against this backdrop, his mid-century array of Danish, Italian, German and English tables, chairs, sofas and lamps, all stacked up to the ceiling.

Our advice is take a trip to Berlin, never a boring destination, to visit this quirky shop and enjoy some German hospitality. Opening hours are Wednesday to Friday, 3pm to 6pm, other times by appointment.
