Shiraz is the largest city in the south of Persia. The diverse original of the many different tribes has given the south Persian carpet an unrivaled variety of patterns. Floral and geometric, arabesque and other styles complement medallion carpets in a multitude of forms. Gabbeh carpets are a traditional variety of Persian carpet. A Gabbeh is hand woven pile rug characterized by an abstract design that relies on open fields of color and a playfulness with geometry. Gabbeh patterns are of a very basic kind with a limited number of decorative objects. Gabbehs usually are of bright colors, such as red and yellow. Although large fields of solid color are used in gabbeh designs, the color is often variegated. Gabbehs are made of natural, hand spun wool yarn and all the colors are created with natural plant dyes. This most unusual wool on cotton foundation Gabbeh rug has three medallions surrounded by floral motifs in red, blue and olive colors and a bold simplified medachyl guard border. Original pile, selvages and secured ends. Clean and in PERFECT condition. Free shipping.
