Blue and Ivory Gabbeh With a Modern Feel
Handmade Shekarlou Gabbeh with a Portal Effect
Shekarlou Rugs are woven with a single weft running horizontally as opposed to the similar Gabbeh rugs that feature a double weft construction. The result of a single weft foundation is rug that more supple than the stiffer Kashkuli and Amaleh Gabbeh rugs. These rugs will feel slightly more fine under foot, and in hand, compared to its more rustic cousins. The blue dye used in this rug has been produced using the naturally growing indigo found in the valleys and meadows of the the Zagros Mountains where these herders and weavers live. Shekarlous typically will not feature defined borders or any of the more whimsically abstract subject matter seen in many other rugs in the Gabbeh family.
