This hand-knotted Persian Gabbeh is immediately impressive with its high quality and very robust pile. It was knotted by hand by Ghashghai nomads in the province of Fars in southern Persia using the best local sheep's wool. Natural vegetable dyes are used to dye the wool. This also makes it a very valuable enrichment for the children's room. This Persian Gabbeh represents the highest class of Gabbeh rugs.

Persian Gabbeh

This beautiful rug is a Persian Gabbeh and thus belongs to the highest quality Gabbeh rugs. The rugs are knotted by nomads or semi-nomads in Iran following traditional handicraft. The simple motifs and patterns are mostly inspired by the nomads' close environment. For example camels, trees or bushes can be found on the traditional rugs. Persian Gabbeh rugs are made of wool from locally raised flocks of sheep. The wool is therefore mostly still spun by hand. Thus each of these oriental rugs embodies a unique character of centuries-old culture.

Handspun wool

This rug is made of hand spun sheep wool of the highest quality. Especially in Iran (former Persia), Afghanistan and Pakistan wool is still spun by hand before the actual knotting of the rug begins. Wool has proven itself as a natural and extremely hard-wearing material over centuries. Among other things, it has dirt-repellent and heat-insulating properties. At the same time, wool is incomparably soft and has a natural shine.

Knotted by hand

Traditionally hand-knotted rugs still form the highest quality standard among all types of rugs. Depending on the type of knot, the rugs are extremely robust and can last for generations. The finer and tighter a rug is knotted, the more detailed ornaments and patterns can be depicted on the pile. At the same time, a very fine oriental rug requires a much higher manual effort as well as a higher level of experience and skill of the knotter. Thus the knot density also serves as a decisive value factor of hand-knotted rugs. The quality is not directly related to the knot density. A rather coarse rug may well have been made in excellent quality.
