Koli Gabbeh 310x247cms


It is an experiment/creation of myself and weavers in the Afghan Quarter of Lahore, Pakistan. They have fond memories of sleeping on coarse unclipped rugs and animal pelts in their childhood snow covered mountain homes. This Koli Kosh is a finer and denser version, more in alignment with good quality rugs. The wool is roughly hand-spun and hand-dyed and knotted quite finely, resulting in a product attractive to the market. They have been quite successful and this particular red field one was made 10 years ago and has recently been traded in. We have washed it and in the manner of good natural wool, it is as good as new. Koli Kosh translates as “superior love”, or “a high thing I like” or “pleasing upper rank thing”. The Koli Kosh Gabbeh are a group of plain bed rugs made in Persia Afghanistan Pakistan and come under the umbrella term Gabbeh. Gabbeh in Persian means simply “woolly”. They are not heraldic, do not portray tribal symbols, and are simply an everyday bedding rug.
