What kind of a rug is a Gabbeh?
Gabbeh means unclipped, the term is used to refer to long pile tribal and village rugs. Often times weavers would weave fine tribal rugs for sale and long pile coarser rugs for their own use. Typically the design is less commercial and the pile is longer. Knot counts tend to be low. They seem to have gotten commercially popular in the 1980s the oldest of the commercial varieties were simple geometric shapes in un-dyed wool. Gabbeh rugs generally lend themselves well to the minimalistic modern look of today’s interiors and the soft gradation of colors that is often found in many pieces is once more popular amongst interior designers.
