Wild Stripes 3x5 Gabbeh
This Energetic Number is Surprisingly Made Using Only Dyes Sourced From Plants and Roots.
One of the truly interesting things about authentic hand-knotted Gabbehs produced in the Zagros Mountains of Iran is the near limitless palette of colors that can be produced using only plant and root sources. Using recipes handed down though families and only by word of mouth, the dyers among these migratory herding tribes combine madder root that has taken 5 years to reach maturity, onion skins and thistle, as well and real indigo to produce an incredible rainbow of colors. And this wild Gabbeh has just about all the tints, hues, and shades they can produce.
