The Gabbeh style rug is hand knotted by Turkoman tribes in the province of AQCHAE of Northern Afghanistan using 100% natural un-dyed hand spun wool on a cotton warp. The natural wool used creates a unique semi plain pattern, meaning the colours can vary from light to dark natural, grey and cream shades due to the variances in the natural wool. The rugs are then transported over to Pakistan where they are expertly finished including washing and trimming.
In 1sqm of Gabbeh rugs there would be around 150000 + knots giving a mid-density pile.
Care Instructions: Specialist cleaning recommended.
Use suction vacuum only, avoid rotating brushes which could damage your rug. We recommend using rug hold underlay to help protect your rug from moving and colour transfer.
