Small Coloured Squares White Gabbeh

The true highlight of this rug is the magnificent undyed white wool field – incredibly oily and shiny – and sheared leaving a very deep cushiony pile, almost an inch thick. The truly minimal composition includes a simple set of three small colourful squares, framed by an elegant single border containing more coloured squares arranged at random around the perimeter.

The term “gabbeh” is a Farsi word, literally translating to “unclipped”. These rugs are woven by nomadic tribes from the Zagros Mountains area of southwestern Persia. The high altitude sheep from this region yield a rich quality of wool with a strong lanolin content, which is what gives these rugs the shine and gloss that is apparent in high quality gabbehs. The iconography is simple, naïve, and surprisingly “modern”.
