Gabbeh refers to a traditional style of weaving from Southwestern Iran.  The nomadic people of the Lori, Bakhtiari, and Qeshqai tribes have woven Gabbeh Oriental rugs for a hundred years, and continue to keep this tribal art form alive.

The beauty of Gabbeh carpets is their departure from the classic Persian style, to one of more freedom and natural expression.  Through the deliberate distortions of line and color, and the simplified use of pattern, the weaver increases the emotional affect of each rug.
