Traditional Qashqai gabbeh

Gabbeh from Shiraz, southern Iran,


1.3 m by 2 m

Smashing abrash and great design. Tribal life encapsulated. Gabbehs are woven by, Qashqai, Bakhtari and Luri weavers in Iran. Much copied, mainly in India and China, but never surpassed .

These rugs are woven from memory by the women of Southern Iran. Free from the pressure of the commercialism of their inferior Indian and Chinese competitors!

Vibrant and packed with subtle abrash.
Woven with beautiful, handspun wool and natural dyes.
