Gabbeh of Iran
The Gabbeh rugs are woven by the Qashqai (kashkai) tribe in Southern
Persia. They are the Turkic Tribe and the most important, most advanced and
the most prosperous of the tribes of FARS. They are almost completely
nomadic, and during eight months of the year they inhabit, in their black goats
hair tents, a high belt of country which extends for about 150 miles
northwards. In the autumn they move from highlands to the warmer coastal
country which lies west, southwest and south of Shiraz. In the olden days the
Gabbeh rugs were only produced for their own domestic use. During the
1980s the western dealers discovered these simple rugs, with their abstract
designs, which were very good for accompanying the new and modern
furnishing and decor. During the last part of the 20th century, these rugs were
the best sellers, worldwide. Although Gabeh rugs have been in production for
centuries, they were almost unknown to the outside world. They have a
thick pile, with very simple designs. These types of rugs are a perfect
companion with modern furnishing, and one can put them almost anywhere in
the home, from a childs room to a sitting room.
This one is woven with very good quality wool and is very hard wearing as
well as being decorative and beautiful. The design is very interesting and is a
very primitive way of showing the tribal motifs; the tribe’s people get their
inspiration from everyday life hence the occasional goat, tent or mountains
you see in their rugs.
