Gabbeh 183x130cms


Southern Persia.

Back in the 1970's when we were first collecting these unusually crazy rugs we would ask "what sort of rug is that". The reply "een qalin Gabbeh", "this rug is a woolly rug" seemed hilariously obvious at the time but it has become acceptable nomenclature of the type. Gabbeh is simply a woolly rug because it was not made for a wedding or a gift for any celebration, nor did it represent an insignia of clan.

Gabbeh rugs are an opportunity to get to know the time we have never lived and the places we’ve never been.

To discover the secret of the Gabbeh, we do not need to be an artist or know the psychology of color, we only have to look with our hearts.
