rugs with character
Qashqai Gabbeh, Southern Iran
Wool on wool, natural dyes, asymmetrical knot
1.2 m by 1.7 m
Qashqai Gabbeh, with expressive, bold zig zag design. Possibly symbolising the raging rivers flowing through the Zagros mountains. Over which the Qashqai migrate.
Gabbehs were originally sleeping rugs, for use in the black tent, for guests and nomads alike.
Like a splash of modern art from the looms of Southern Iran. If you look closely in the field you will see various amulets and charms. Woven to provide protection and good luck to the owner!
