A note about the age of many of the rugs and carpets for sale on ebay, particularly those labelled as Kazak or Chobi. Most rugs labelled Kazak are modern copies from either Afghanistan or Pakistan as are those carpets and rugs labelled Chobi or Ziegler. Production of these rugs did not start until the late 1980's when large numbers of these copies of Caucasian and Persian designs began to come out of west Pakistan and later Afghanistan. Any rug labelled Afghan Kazak or Afghan Chobi described as being old, antique or over 20 years old is misdescribed, in fact many rugs on ebay are brand new.
