Sherkarlou Gabbeh 5x7 Rug
Handmade Wool Shekarlou Gabbeh Rug
Materials: Hand-spun Wool and Naturally Sourced Dyes
Hand-knotted in Northern Iran
Shekarlou rugs tend to feel softer in the hand when compared to other rugs in the Gabbeh family of rugs due the lack of the double wefting technique used in the construction of the foundation. Shekarlou rugs use a single weft, which results in a carpet that feels much less stiff than its more rustic cousins. The designs of the Shekarlou rugs tend to gravitate away from the more abstract imagery of the Amaleh Gabbeh, and the rigid traditional feel of the Luri woven pieces, and often seek to convey a sense of timelessness or an emotional feeling by the use of color and gradation. The wool is the same durable high altitude wool produced by the migrating sheep of the Zagros Mountains used in Gabbeh rugs and will retain its beauty for years to come. The colors are all sourced from naturally growing plants in the region and hold up very well to sun exposure.
