  • Notes:
  • Gabbeh carpets are a traditional variety of Persian carpet. Traditionally a sleeping rug, a Gabbeh is a hand-woven pile rug of coarse quality and medium size (90 x 150 cm, 3 by 5 ft, or larger) characterized by an abstract design that relies upon open fields of color and a playfulness with geometry. This type of rug is popular among the populations of the Zagros Mountains of Iran. The Gabbeh is usually crafted by women. Gabbeh carpets are much thicker and coarser than other Persian carpets. Sometimes they can be as much as one inch or 2.5 cm in depth. In fact, they are more a variety of kilim than carpet. The word Gabbeh comes from the Persian meaning raw, natural, uncut. This is a rough and primitive carpet. Gabbeh patterns are of a very basic kind with only a limited number of decorative, mostly rectangular objects resembling mainly animals. Gabbeh rugs usually use bright colors, such as yellow and red. Although large fields of solid color are used in Gabbeh designs, the color often varies. Gabbehs are made of natural, handspun wool yarn and all the colors are created with natural plant dye.
