Hand Tufted Gabeh Pattern Carpet
The late 19th century Gabbeh rugs were woven by tribal weavers who live in the majestic Zagros Mountains (Iran). The term "Gabbeh" comes from a Persian word meaning raw, natural, uncut or “in the rough”. The earlier examples had rich saturated natural dye colors and bold graphic designs. They consisted of a field of natural un-dyed wool and stylized zoomorphic designs; goats, camels, dogs, horses and donkeys and often large tigers were often depicted in these simple rugs.
About Hand Tufted Rugs
Hand tufting is a traditional method, which requires a high level of craftsmanship. Our rugs are entirely made by hand: the yarn is hand dyed, tufted by hand with a small mechanical tool and finally sheared, using hand held scissors. No electricity is used.
