Place of origin

Gabbeh rugs are knotted by nomads living in the province of Fars, near the city of Shiraz. In Persian Gabbeh is the name for high-pile rugs, on which people slept. Classical Gabbeh have imaginative, naive geometric patterns and are very colorful. Today's modern Gabbeh is mostly plain with monochrome designs. Still even today you can find stylized patterns depicting the everyday life of the nomads, such as goats, camels, dogs, plants or people in the rugs. Gabbeh rugs mostly have natural cream, brown and grey tones, but you can also find them in vivid yellow, red or blue.

Patterns

The edge of the rug is decorated with an edging (border). The border forms a excellent contrast to the center.

The pile is a plain light red. The simple design is understated, but can also provide a great design accent. The monochrome appearance of this rug fits perfectly in any environment.

Condition

This Gabbeh has a story. It was hand knotted about 1980. We have cleaned it thoroughly and restored it lovingly. Therefore it is in very good condition despite its age.

Material

Gabbehs are knotted by hand from hand-spun wool and dyed with natural dyes. The handspun wool gives the rugs a grainy but soft surface. Traditionally, Gabbeh rugs were used for sleeping. They invite you to sit and fiddle around in the living room, but are also very suitable for hallways and dining areas.

Handspun wool is always somewhat irregular. During dyeing, natural dyes are absorbed differently. The rug appears more lively, due to the so-called color jumps (abrash), i.e. light-dark color shades. The color changes of the pile yarn are always across the length of the Gabbeh and make the rug impervious to soiling. The backing (weft and warp threads) of this Gabbeh is made of virgin wool.

The colors of this carpet change depending on which side it is viewed from. It depends on whether the light falls on the line or against the line of the pile. We have therefore taken pictures of this rug from different perspectives.
