Oriental Rugs Glossary
<< Back to Glossary List
Gabbeh are nomadic rugs from the South Persian province of Fars. Most of these rugs are made by Ghashgai nomads. This is a real Gabbeh, no cheap Indian reproduction. Typical for Gabbeh rugs is the usage of natural looking colors and the simple stylized designs, often simply drawn persons, animals or flowers. Gabbeh rugs are (justifiably) experiencing a huge comeback for quite a while now.
