Gabbeh Fine is the name of a special rug in high quality, made from hand spun wool dyed in vegetable dyes. Gabbeh Fine is woven by the Lori and Kashghai tribes. It is coarsely woven, with light colours and a thick pile. Most Gabbeh rugs are sold in the bazaars of Shiraz. The ends are Kelims that have been repent and sewed up. The patterns are most often geometrical, although the Kashghai Gabbeh sometimes display motifs in their finer rugs. Sometimes figure patterns can be seen; goats, camels, and lions, covered by small geometrical motifs, and copies of reliefs from Persepolis (the main city of the Achaemenid dynasty, near Shiraz). Typical colours are beige, brown, red, orange, and dark blue. Gabbeh rugs are made by Nomad tribes and dwellers in the south of Iran. The Khasqai and Lori tribes are the best known producers, and as far as patterns and colour combinations are concerned, Gabbeh rugs are undoubtedly the most unpredictable of Pers ian rugs. The Nomad style is simple and spartan - qualities which make these rugs so varied and exiting. The attractive, pure colours and simple figures of the Gabbeh rug match the style of the modern home.
