Gabbeh rugs, emerging from the depths of the Zagros Mountains in Persia, were a modernity before modern trends had been invented. Known for the simple, bold and abstract designs, the term ‘Gabbeh’ comes from the Persian ‘gava’ - meaning raw, uncut or unclipped, reflecting the rugs primitive style and coarse weave. Gabbeh rugs have a thick, longer pile and with a looser knot than the classic Persian carpets.
Hundreds of years ago, nomads of old Persia worked their myths and stories preserved over generations into the carpet artistry of Gabbeh rugs. Unlike like the commonly known floral Persian carpets, Gabbeh rugs themes stem from pre-islamic times and convey similarities to the works of expressionistic art from Europe.
Crafted with the intention to gift or beautify one's surroundings, each was made while travelling through the mountains and are inspired by nature and the artist's dreams. Each irregularity adds to the uniqueness and authenticity of the rug, where the true beauty lies in imperfection.
