This type of rug is popular among the populations of the Zagros Mountains of Persia, including Kurdish, Luri and Qashqaai people. The Gabbeh is usually crafted by women. Gabbeh'carpet is much thicker and coarser than other Persian carpets; sometimes it is as much as one inch in depth. In fact, it is more of a variety of kilim than carpet.The word'Gabbeh'comes from the Persian meaning raw, natural, uncut. This is a rough and primitive carpet. Gabbeh patterns are of a very basic kind with only a limited number of decorative, mostly rectangular objects resembling mainly animals. In Gabbeh usually bright colors, such as yellow and red, are used. Although large fields of solid color are used in Gabbeh designs, the color is variegated (the color varies throughout the rug).
Gabbehs are made of natural, handspun wool yarn and all the colors are created with natural plant dye. Due to its relative ease of production less precise pattern, small number of knots per square centimeter, etc. A Gabbe is one of the less expensive varieties of Persian carpet.
