Gabbeh Qashghai rug, No_ 172394 (190x158cm)

These rugs have gained global renown for their extraordinary texture, achieved through the utilization of the highest quality wool, meticulously produced and spun into tightly twisted yarns by skilled Qashghai artisans.

The vibrant colours are obtained through dyes derived from various parts and roots of plants that the Qashghais gather during their nomadic journeys across the sprawling plains of Mount Zagros in pursuit of fresh grass.

Qashghais have everything they need to make their rugs on their portable looms; good material, inspiration from nature, firmly rooted traditions and their rich collective memory. The carpet here is a beautiful example of such rugs in a lush pile and attractive design.
