Antique Persian Gabbeh Rug

About

A tribal antique Persian Gabbeh in camel, creams, yellow, browns and rusts. Antique Gabbehs rugs are tribal Persian rugs made with extra high pile and very simple, graphic designs focused on the use of color, which can be vibrant or soft and earthy. As pieces made for domestic use rather than commercial value in the marketplace, Gabbeh carpets have a cultural authenticity that renders them highly desirable to collectors. Nevertheless, with their lustrous soft wool and emphasis on color over design detail, they are extremely usable today as decorative rugs, especially in informal modern settings. Those who are shopping for Gabbehs should beware of mass-produced knock-offs from India, called "Indo-Gabbehs." These are often made from inferior wool and do not have the softness and comfort of traditional Gabbehs. Beware of Gabbehs with white fringe, as this is a sign of non-traditional origin. A Gabbeh is a type of traditional tribal carpet originally made by the Qashqai Tribe in the Zagros Mountains of Iran. Gabbeh designs are characterized by broad fields of color with playful geometric forms and animal or human figures. A well-made Gabbeh has a deep pile, often an inch thick, and a relatively low knot density. Since Gabbehs have traditionally been made for informal home use, their designs usually are not stylized and the full creativity of the maker can be expressed.
