This is a Gabbeh, which in Farsi means crude and whimsical, creating purity and simplicity on another level. This vibrant Gabbeh rug has small intricate geometric patterns throughout the rug. The pile, of a regular length, is composed of soft, high quality hand-spun wool, while the carpet's weave is strong and durable, suitable for high traffic areas.
Imagine a group of ingenious tribal folk, all women we might add, sitting around their horizontal loom out in the Northern frontier of Afghanistan, smoking their opium and talking about life. Made purely from memory, their hands were tying single knots almost effortlessly, almost like a symphony to create such magnificence!

How to care for your rug:

  • Vacuum regularly to prevent dirt from the surface
  • If spills occur, do not rub or spread the stain. Simply blot the affected area with a dry cloth or a tissue to absorb the stain and work towards the stain.
  • Use warm water diluted in clear white vinegar to manage the dyes
  • It's recommended that you rotate the rug (not too often) to equalize the surface wear
  • If heavy furniture is placed over the rug, use a protector to avoid damaging the surface of the rug.
  • If your carpet is of hand-knotted wool, do not worry about furniture indents, simple vacuuming against the pile will prop up the surface once again. 
  • Professional cleaning: Every year, depending on the usage of the rug
  • Surface shedding: Hand Knotted rugs do not shed.
