The Persian Gabbeh

Gabbehs are a type of tribal or village rug woven in Iran. Most times they are woven with a wool pile and also a wool foundation. There are some exceptions but usually they are very rustic and feature a few figures with minimal design. Many times they are in the more neutral colors and use hand spun wool and some natural dyes. they tend to be of a modest knot density but are quite durable and rugged. they are great rugs. Shown below is an app. 3.5 x 5 Gabbeh.  This one IS done with the hand spun wool and some natural dyes. Thanks everyone and have a great day.Gabbeh
