Gabbeh Oriental Rugs and Carpets

Gabbeh (translating to un-clipped) oriental rugs reached high demand in the 1980's.  Newer versions are still very popular in today's market, and more consistent in style and weave than older.  Despite the discrepancies between vintages, gabbeh rugs in general continue to grow in popularity. 

Sometimes labeled as "contemporary", these rugs actually feature what could be considered by some as a "folk art" type design although this varies from weaver to weaver and vintage.  Generally speaking, newer Gabbeh rugs are commonly made by the Qashqai, a nomadic tribe.  The field of Gabbeh rugs are often solid of color (perhaps without borders), depicting woven, geometric animal and human interpretations.  Colors often are on the brighter and upbeat side, with rich and deep golds, reds, blues and others as seen above

Other Gabbeh rugs are three dimensional, incorporating both a soumac, or flatweave, contrasted with a high cut pile to create texture.  panel design Gabbeh rugs also exist, however the more commonly produced rugs tend to have arbitrary designs, sometimes unidirectional, or even simple, striated colors running horizontal through the weaving.  There are some Gabbeh rugs which feature thick "spaghetti", sometimes braided fringe, although more commonly, newer Gabbeh rugs will have shorter fringe cut soon after the pile begins.
