Types of rug available at Rugs Oriental

Rugs Oriental stocks a vast array of quality handmade rugs in various styles, colors, sizes and prices. We pride ourselves on providing the people of the Cayman Islands with the most impressive and eclectic selection of beautiful handmade rugs. We believe there truly is a rug for everyone at Rugs Oriental…whether you’re looking for a finely woven traditional Persian “city” piece, a tribal village rug from Turkey or Iran, or even an affordable contemporary piece from Pakistan or India.

Traditional rugs

There is a plethora of Traditional rug options available at Rugs Oriental. We have a large selection of “city” pieces which are made usually in workshops, where weavers work under the direction of a foreman and follow detailed patterns. They are typically made on vertical looms, often with several weavers working at the same time on the same piece. These “city” pieces typically have a curvilinear pattern, characterized by rounded, circular elements, scrolls, flowers, birds and trees. They are generally made from either silk, very fine wool or silk and wool. Most of our traditional city pieces are produced in the major weaving centres in Iran ie. Kashan, Tabriz, Nain, Heriz, Bidjar, Saruq and Sonqor.

Rugs Oriental also stocks a wide selection of traditional curvilinear style “Ziegler/Chobi” rugs. A German company based in Manchester (England), Ziegler and Co. commissioned the development of the original Ziegler back in 1883. Using leading designers and master weavers from Iran and Europe, Ziegler and Co. managed to create a design using softer palettes than those typically found in Iran. Ziegler rugs were designed with the western market in mind and fit perfectly into almost any home. Their muted colors using vegetable dyes and simple, yet striking pattern fit well with modern neutral colour schemes and both contemporary or traditional furniture. Most of our new Ziegler carpets are crafted in Pakistan or Afghanistan and are labelled Chobi. Rugs Oriental also stocks a great selection of similar quality geometric style “Kazak” rugs from Pakistan as well as a gorgeous selection of sophisticated Afghan pieces.

For our customers looking for more geometric style traditional rugs we have a fabulous selection of Tribal/Village rugs to choose from. Tribal or village rugs are typically made in the weaver’s own home, generally on a horizontal loom or simple hand loom. The weavers employ traditional geometric design motifs which have been handed down over generations and often have specific meaning assigned to them.

Contemporary rugs

We stock an ever-growing collection of contemporary style pieces for our customers looking for modern style rugs. They feature exciting new designs and are often defined by sleek clean lines, neutral colours and minimalist styling to add an exotic touch to contemporary spaces. All of our modern / contemporary rugs are handmade on traditional looms often employing handspun wool and natural dyes.


Our superb collection of flatweaves are ideal for casual Caribbean beach settings. Woven textiles (as opposed to knotted) are made by integrating two or more sets of threads in various ways. They are made to lie on the floors of houses, tents or places of worship, to hang on walls or over doors and windows, and to cover furniture or domestic objects. Rugs Oriental stocks a wide variety of flatweaves including really affordable new kilims from Pakistan, antique/vintage collector’s pieces from Turkey, as well as tribal and contemporary pieces from Iran.

Antique / Vintage rugs

For the serious or even novice rug collectors who appreciate the oriental carpet as a fine art we also stock antique and vintage rugs. Generally rugs more than 100 years old are classified as antique. Old pieces that are less than 100 years old are considered vintage.
