This captivating Afghan Gabbeh rug is full of pictorial charm featuring a variety of animals, each individually handwoven in a traditional tribal style. Like many Gabbeh pieces, this rug has simplistic traits, with the field containing rows of shapes and patterns, each separated by a small striped border. The animals woven into this fine piece include camels, goats and birds, likely native creatures of the weavers.
Afghan Gabbeh rugs such as this stem from designs traditionally woven by tribal women in Southern Iran. This results in Gabbehs having a more feminine feel in comparison to other similar rug styles.
This Gabbeh rug is woven using soft, finely knotted wool, creating a soft plush feel and durable finish. Combined with the deep blue and red colours and interesting pictures, this piece would add warmth and imagination to any living area.
