Gabbeh rugs are a type of traditional Persian carpet, known for their simplistic, tribal designs and vibrant colors. Here are some key features and background information about Gabbeh rugs:

Design and Patterns

  • Simplicity: Gabbeh rugs are known for their minimalist designs, often featuring large fields of colour with geometric shapes or simple motifs.
  • Motifs: Common motifs include animals, plants, and abstract symbols, reflecting the weavers’ surroundings and lifestyles.
  • Colors: Natural dyes are used, resulting in rich, vibrant colours like deep reds, blues, greens, and yellows.

Materials and Craftsmanship

  • Materials: These rugs are typically made from hand-spun wool, which is prized for its durability and warmth.
  • Weaving Technique: The weaving is done by hand on horizontal looms, with a high pile that gives the rugs a plush, soft texture.
  • Knotting: Gabbeh rugs often feature a lower knot density compared to other Persian rugs, contributing to their thicker pile and distinct texture.
