Gabbeh sampler

Gabbeh, Qashqai, Southern Iran,


0.5 m by 0.5 m

Gabbeh sampler, used to give a Gide to buyers of colour, wool quality and quality of weave. This piece was given to me before I commissioned pieces to be woven by Qashqai weavers in the villages just outside Brugen, in the Char mahal valley west of Isfahan.

From this very piece I bought 1000sqm of Gabbeh from the village and nomadic Qasqai of a he area. They wove their traditional designs or took inspiration from their surroundings. A number of other weavings on this site come from that particular buying trip !
