One of the most familiar, traditional designs is this one: the finely-detailed border around a field of rich, Persian red. Even from a distance, this rug stands out as a Gabbeh. Note the precisely rendered comb shapes in the border, as well as the minute flowers scattered inside the main rectangle. Hand-knotted, soft as velvet, this rug exemplifies a Gabbeh.
