ABOUT GABBEH RUGS

Gabbeh carpets are a traditional variety of Oriental carpet. Gabbeh is known as Gava in Kurdish and Luri and is also called Khersak.

A Gabbeh a hand-woven pile rug of coarse quality and medium size (90 x 150 cm or larger) characterized by an abstract design that relies upon open fields of color and a playfulness with geometry.

This type of rug is popular among the populations.

The Gabbeh is usually crafted by women.

'Gabbeh' carpet usually is much thicker and coarser than other carpets, sometimes it is as much as one inch in depth.

In fact, it is more of a variety of kilim than carpet. The word 'Gabbeh' comes from the Dari language meaning raw, natural, uncut.

Gabbeh patterns are of a very basic kind with only a limited number of decorative, mostly rectangular objects resembling mainly animals.

In Gabbeh usually bright colors, such as yellow and red, are used.

Although large fields of solid color are used in Gabbeh designs, the color is variegated (the color varies throughout the rug).

Gabbehs are made of natural, handspun wool yarn and all the colors are created with natural plant dye.

Due to its relative ease of production (less precise pattern, small number of knots per square centimeter, etc.) a Gabbeh is one of the less expensive varieties of oriental carpet.

These days weavers from Pakistan, Afghanistan and India are producing natural-dyed, hand-spun Gabbeh rugs.
