Afghan Gabbeh (4-2 x 6-1)
Such an interesting and artistic rug. The lines of color that start and stop, almost creating a design in themselves, add to the unpredictableness of this rug. An unusual and fun design, handknotted in muted natural-dye colors. Now that we can't get Gabbehs from Iran any longer, we're finding some great examples of similar designs done also with the vegetal dyes which are one-of-a-kind, unusual rugs - in this case made in Afghanistan.
