A Persian Gabbeh Nomadic Rug. Number 157800 160x218cm
Nomads of Southern Persia are colourful people. That is a fact that is noticeable from their dresses and weavings. Therefore finding a piece like the one here is unusual and rare. Perhaps the weaver of this rug was just trying to reflect The deserts they frequently pass during their quest for the green pastures. Regardless of the inspiration, the piece has a modern feel. The inconsistency of the handspun wool in its natural colour has made this rug one that could work very well in a contemporary space and represent a connection between two different worlds of tradition and modernity.
