Medium Size Orange Gabbeh Persian Oriental Area Rug 5x8 Handspun Wool - $ 1251.50The Gabbeh is a very simple hand-woven tribal rug made by nomadic people in southern Iran and India. Its distinctive native style is especially suited to modern and eclectic interiors. The early weaver was given only the cotton for the base, along with dyed woolen yarn. He had no pattern, but looked at his surroundings and reproduced what he saw. Therefore each carpet is unique. This spontaneous style recently achieved much wider acceptance, and became very popular at home and abroad. Generally on a thick, heavy pile it combines large uncluttered fields with the occasional geometric human or animal silhouette. Sometimes there are over-all abstract patterns or bold stripes. Due to great demand for the Indo-Gabbeh, patterns were eventually made of the more popular designs. Once production was organized, specific colors, sizes and designs could be ordered. However, due to the variety in texture and quality of natural woolen yarn, with occasional gray fibers occurring, 'abrash' * ensures that no two rugs are identical.
