A Gabbeh is a hand-woven pile rug characterized by an abstract design that relies upon open fields of colour and playful geometry. Gabbehs are woven by tribal women and are principally used as ‘bedding blankets’ by the nomadic tribes of the Zagros Mountains of Iran, including Kurdish, Luri and Ghashgha’i people. Gabbehs are quintessentially Zollanvari and geometric designs are quintessential Gabbeh designs. Our Gabbehs come in different qualities. Our finest Gabbeh weave is Kashkuli, named after one of the Ghashgha’i nomadic tribes living in Fars province, southeast and northwest of Shiraz. Amaleh, also named after one of the Ghashgha’i tribes who produced high quality artefacts for the Khans, are more coarsely knotted, but truly unique and individual in patterns and colour combinations.
