This is a luxurious wool rug, woven on a wool foundation, and in excellent condition for its age with a lovely, floppy handle. It is a Persian Gabbeh rug from the south of the country and these rugs were woven with simplicity in mind. The word "Gabbeh" comes in Farsi means "raw, natural, or in the rough" and here we see wonderful colors, rich silky wool and minimal art design that grabs our attention immediately.
These pieces were woven relatively quickly without the need for large looms. In the past, these types of pliable rugs were used nor only as floor coverings but also as wraps or bedding to help insulate against the bitter cold of the mountains. Amazing history in these rugs! You will definitely appreciate this rug if you want to collect a neutral vintage beauty that is in great condition and offers a lot of soft wool. If you look closely, you will find a super light mint green in the rug among the neutral color ground. The art of this rug is whimsical and the pattern has beautiful breaks with the evident changes in dyes.
We do recommend a small rug pad to help keep this little gem nice n snug. You can click on the link to add it to your order: https://www.shopblueparakeetrugs.com/collections/rug-pads/products/small-rug-pad
