Country of origin: Persia
Gabbeh (from the Persian language farsi; raw, natural, uncut) represents a rough and primitive carpet with patterns mostly made by Gashgai nomads from the Farsi province in the southwest of Iran. These carpets are probably the most well-known handmade carpets from Iran. They are manufactured by hand spun wool, both in the pile and warp, and the yarns are dyed using plant dyes. The carpets are much thicker than other Persian carpets, sometimes up to 2.5 cm thick.
Pile: wool yarn
Weft: wool yarn, generally 2 wefts after every row of knots
Warp: wool yarn
Knot density: 40 000 - 170 000 knots per square metre
