About 150 years ago, Gabbeh rugs were designed by tribal nomads living in the largest mountain range in Iran/Persia, the Zagros, at an altitude of approximately 15,000 feet. The term "Gabbeh" comes from a Persian/Iranian word meaning "raw" or "in the rough". Rugs from the 19th century are floppy due to their multiple wide wefts, coarse knotting, and long pile. Cherished for their rich colors using natural dyes, fine wool, and striking geometric designs, Gabbeh carpets were used as much for bedding and wraps as floor coverings. The Qashqai, Bahktiari, and Lurs tribes are most commonly associated with weaving these rugs.
