    DESCRIPTION:
    The name “Gabbeh” from the Persian language means (raw, natural or uncut) which represents a rough and primitive rug with patterns mostly made by Ghashghai nomads from the Farsi province in the southwest of Iran/Persia. Gabbeh is a hand-woven pile rug characterized by an abstract design that relies upon open fields of colour and playful geometry. These rugs are woven by tribal women and are principally used as “bedding blankets' by the nomadic tribes of the Zagros Mountains or Iran/Persia.

    Gabbeh rugs are manufactured by hand-spun wool, both in the pile and warp, and the yarns are dyed using plant and root dyes. The rugs are much thicker than other Persian carpets, sometimes up to 2.5 cm thick.

    Gabbehs simple and colourful design are being used in many areas of interior design for homes and offices, with their majestic beauty that enhance any décor.
    RUGS WOVEN BY NOMADS: Nomads move continuously and do not stay permanently in one geographic region.They weave handmade carpets on collapsible looms. Due to that fact there may be slight variations in weaving and the different shades of wool with sometimes uneven in shape giving it a real feeling of a genuine nomadic handicraft. The weaving is made from memory and it depends on each artisans momentary inspiration. The workmanship is of high quality from hand spun wool to preparing the natural dyes from organic plants and roots to dye the wool in different colors in preparation for weaving. Persian Handmade rugs have a timeless appeal which transcends the whims of fashion, and are one of the most sustainable and eco-friendly flooring options available. Each unique design represents the artistic vision and fine craftsmanship by the hand of the weaver.
