Item Details

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.
