More about the provenance Gabbeh | India
Persian Gabbeh rugs are nomadic rugs from the South Persian province of Fars. Most of these rugs are made by Ghashgai nomads. The usage of natural looking colors and the simple stylized designs, often simply drawn persons, animals or flowers is typical for Gabbeh rugs. Gabbeh rugs are (justifiably) experiencing a huge comeback for quite a while now. This Gabbeh rug is a very high quality reproduction made in Pakistan.
This Oriental rug has been treated with a "Noble Finish" wash. This wash includes not only the actual cleaning of the carpet but also its processing (ennobling) which represents an increase in the Oriental carpet's value. By this special technique a soft and silky feel and shine are added to the carpet. This washing technique requires experience and skill since otherwise carpets could easily be damaged by it. In this case the washing was implemented perfectly.
