Gabbeh Bakhtiari Rug With Naive Animals

CALLIE HOLLENDEN


A CONTEMPORARY GABBEH-BAKHTIARI RUG
A contemporary Gabbeh-Bakhtiari rug depicting naive animals and geometric shapes in linear form. Wool on wool. 60,000 knots per square metre. Gabbeh Rugs : Gabbeh in Farsi means natural, primitive. Rugs with this name are woven by the nomads Qashqai who roam about, or in villages in Southwestern Iran where they live. The yarns are processed and twisted by hand, painted with herbal colours and woven with a wool warp up to 2 cm thick. These rugs are simple, with a few naive, linear designs, with animals and human figures giving them a contemporary look. The Persian Gabbeh is very durable and its quality is very good. Bakhtiari Rugs : In the mountains Zagros, west of the city of Isfahan, around the town of Shahr-e-Kurd, live the nomads Bakhtiar. Their rugs are known for the design with various repeating squares in which flowers and animals are depicted. For this reason the design is called "garden"(Khesti). Their rugs are very durable with a dense weave and very good quality Persian wool coming from sheep grazing at a high altitude. The best Bakhtiari rugs with highest knot density are often called Bibibaff.

She firmly believes a range of styles and eras can comfortably co exist.  A 17th century tapestry is easily displayed in the same setting as a 20th century lucite dining table.

A passion for collecting began from an early age: "I never know what I'm going to find and always keep an open mind.  I've bought some exquisite, wonderful and wacky items over the years."

She has an interesting selection of 17th, 18th and 19th century painted furniture, fruitwood furniture, mirrors, lighting, works of art and objects extraordinaire.
