Gabbeh (from the Persian language farsi; raw, natural, uncut) represents a rough and primitive carpet with patterns mostly made by Ghashghai 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.
Traditionally, Gabbeh rugs are made much thicker and coarser, with thickness up to one inch. This superfine Gabbeh is unique through its thinner-than-usual quality. It is made with finer wool and a lower pile.
