Custom Rugs-8×10 Gabbeh Rug in Hunter Green

Custom Rugs-8×10 Gabbeh Rug in Hunter Green

This hand made custom rug creation was inspired by a traditional / tribal Persian Gabbeh that we had exhibited on our walls. Granted, the gorgeous red Persian rug was stunning in every way. The wool was gleaming with shine because of the beautiful handspun wool that was used in its creation. The natural dyes were exquisite. Persian rugs truly inspire because of their beauty and craftsmanship. That being said, the customer was not interested in red and even though it was a good size she was not interested in it for her home. I told her that we could create a similar version that she would like in the colors that she liked. I took out our custom colors and she got excited, but still hesitant. But the seed had been planted and the rug stood out in her mind. A couple of weeks later she came back to our shop and order an 8×10 custom carpet for her living room. 


This was the rug she fell in love with on our walls. As it is Persian, we could not get another one. And certainly not custom. 



As you can see there are some slight differences and that is ok as we were not looking for an exact copy. We just wanted the same look and feel. Made in India.


Making a custom gabbeh is really a joy, as Gabbehs are a classic design. They have a slightly bigger pile than other rugs which makes them feel super luxurious when you walk on them. The customer got to choose from our selection of 1200 colors and she picked what she wanted. Her current rug was a vintage chinese design that was already threadbare in parts. The green color was the same except more of a solid, not handspun wool that creates the beautiful “abrashness” that so many of us love in rugs. This was a major upgrade.

We forgot to take a before photo, but the old rug had definitely seen better days! Replacing it with this gorgeous gabbeh was exactly what this living room needed. Don't you agree?

The original Gabbeh rugs were first created in Iran. However, contemporary versions of Gabbeh rugs can now be found in India, Pakistan, and Turkey, each incorporating elements from their respective regions and periods. These hand-knotted rugs are highly acclaimed for their versatility and long-lasting quality due to their thicker and coarser texture compared to other carpets. That’s why they make an excellent choice for homes adorned with vibrant and modern decorations.

Bright and vibrant colors were beloved by the skilled weavers as they added magic and enchantment to their humble abodes. Initially, Gabbeh carpets featured uncomplicated depictions of nature, showcasing animals, plants, and symbolic representations of tribal life. Gradually, these weavers began incorporating more intricate elements into their designs. 

Gabbeh rugs continue to display a distinctive feature that modern designers greatly appreciate – variations in color known as “abrash” among rug dealers. These Gabbeh rugs, with their single-color design and abrash tones, showcase subtle variations in color texture. This effect is particularly pronounced when the wool used in the Gabbeh is hand-spun and dyed using natural sources. Over time, other contemporary designs have been incorporated into Gabbeh rugs; however, simplicity remains a standout and appealing characteristic of these area rugs
