What is a Gabbeh?

December 22, 2016

gabbeh runner at Nahigian rugsTo rug lovers, Gabbeh rugs provide the excitement that makes Persian rugs so desirable. These rugs are made with fascinating designs and exquisite patterns woven with wool from sheep that graze on the Zagros mountains.

Gabbeh is the universal name given to rugs from Southwest Persia made by the nomadic tribes that inhabit that region. Loris, Bulurbafs, Kashkulis, Amalehs, and Belouch, Soumaks are among the many styles of richly colored and patterned rugs made by these artisans. Each rug is unique in its design and coloration. The wool has a wonderful luster and softness. The exceptional beauty of these rugs is achieved by the use of natural dyes to create the rich colors. Scatter sizes, runners and room sizes are available in these styles-with each rug being a unique work of art.
