< >

Attractive antique Bakhtiari Gabbeh rug. Gabbeh is a type of coarsely knit rug with a fleshy pile and with many more wefts in between the rows of knots. Traditionally Gabbehs are not woven to be sold but to be used in the tribal household, therefore the softest and finest quality wool is used for it. Sometimes it is used as a mattress and the softest ones may even be used as blankets. In weaving Gabbehs; the weaver feels quite free to improvise and experiment in both colour and design. Bakhtiari Gabbehs have a unique weave and are different to the other types of Gabbeh.The multi coloured diamond motifs in the ground and medallion give this piece a certain charm. Spandrels are usually a quarter of the medallion design but in this piece they are totally different. The piece is brought alive with a very pretty cream border.
