Gabbah rugs are lovely handmade rugs of a more modern style. They often feature plain and simpler patterns, such as stripes and checkers. The lovely colours result from the wool being dyed with natural dyes. These dyes are made from plants and minerals. This kind of rug is a more modern creation and has only been made in more recent times. The main markets for these rugs are in industrialised countries. These rugs are made by traditional Turkman artisans in Northern Afghanistan. These traditional artisans have gone into the rug making business and now make rugs professionally and commercially. Other spellings may include: Gabbeh, Gabba. Learn more about our rugs here.
