In Farsi (the language of Persia), the word Gabbeh means something raw or natural, uncut or "in the rough". Gabbeh are the world's best-known coarsely woven Iranian tribal rugs. True Persian Gabbeh rugs are made by nomads in south-central Iran, and feature hand-spun wool in both the pile and the foundation, as well as all natural dyes. Simple, colorful geometric patterns, abstract scenery, child-like representations of people and animals, bright colors? more

**Amalehbaft** Gabbeh feature a medium weave in terms of coarseness and knots-per-inch. In general they probably have even less in the way of design than the basic Gabbeh. Because of their tighter weave, shorter pile and simple patterns, these beautiful rugs are a great way to add color to a room without the distraction of too many design elements.
