LORI GABBEH

Details

Gabbeh is the name given to a specific rug woven by the Lori and Ghashgai tribes. They are coarsely woven, brightly colored, and have a thick pile. Most of them are sold in the Shiraz bazaar. Typically, the warps, wefts and pile are all of hand-spun wool and there are no fringes: the Kelim at the ends is tucked in and sewn up.

Description

The Designs are generally geometrical; through occasionally Ghashgai Gabbehs show motifs seen in their finer rugs. Sometimes, figural designs are seen: lions, their bodies covered with small geometrical motifs or copies of relief's at Persepolis (the capital near Shiraz of the Achemenian Dynasty). There are a huge variety of different designs. Sometimes, Gabbeh's are coarse re-workings of carpet designs from elsewhere in Iran. Typically colors are red, orange and deep blue.
