Gabbeh carpets are a traditional variety of Persian carpets, they are a hand-knotted pile rug of coarse quality and usually of medium size. This type of rug is popular among the populations of the Zagros Mountains of Iran, including Kurdish, Luri, and Qashqai people. Gabbeh carpets are much thicker and coarser than other Persian carpets; sometimes they can be as much as one inch or 2.5 cm in depth. The word “Gabbeh” comes from the Persian language, meaning raw, natural, uncut. This is a rough and primitive carpet.
Gabbeh patterns are of a very basic kind, with only a limited number of decorative mostly rectangular objects resembling mainly animals. Gabbeh carpets are usually woven with bright colors, such as yellow and red. Although large fields of solid color are used in Gabbeh designs, the color is variegated (the color varies throughout the rug, with the appearance of differently colored zones). Gabbeh carpets are made of natural, hand-spun wool yarn and all the colors are created with natural dyes.
