Gabbeh rugs

Sub menu: Lion rugs, Loribaft,

Persian Gabbeh rugs are coarsely woven tribal rugs, often with simple geometric patterns and figures with a ‘modern look’. Gabbehs are woven by Luri, Qashqai and Bakhtiari tribes for domestic use. They are generally much thicker than other Persian rugs. Find examples of these rugs in the educational photo-gallery.
