About the collection

Gabbeh-style rugs are identified by their saturated colors and playful imagery. Often with thick frame borders, like a painting, these thick, soft rugs depict a rich and sophisticated sense of color, telling stories with idiosyncratic geometric details amidst an abyss of saturated, dappled monochrome.

Rug Design

Karam has a field of striated coral populated with various zoomorphic creatures—most likely sheep—in different hues, who are surrounded by a fence-border of dainty triangles.

Material Details

These pieces are hand-knotted with a soft blend of sheep and lambswool. Unparalleled for centuries, wool has a hydrophobic layer which repels dust and dirt, as well as lanolin, which provides its trademark luster and protects the fiber from breaking or shedding. It's woven onto wool wefts, adding enviable body and heft.

  • We recommend that you regularly vacuum your rug to remove dirt and grime. Depending on how heavily your rug is used, just once or twice a month is adequate. Too much vacuuming can wear down the knots and fibers more quickly. If you have a suction attachment on your vacuum cleaner, use that instead of a rotary vacuum.
  • Every few months, you’ll also want to flip your rug over and vacuum the back to get the grit out of the foundation of the rug. It also helps to rotate your rug once a year to ensure even wear over time.
  • Every 3-5 years, we recommend getting your rug professionally hand-washed. Please do not take it to get steam or dry cleaned—this will almost certainly damage the rug! Hand-washing requires the use of a pH-balanced shampoo, worked into the rug by hand with a soft-bristled brush, before being rinsed thoroughly. This process should be repeated a few times.
  • In case of spills, use a paper towel or cloth to blot the liquid. Add some clean water sparingly to the spot to dilute the stain (or wet a paper towel or cloth) and blot. If the stain is persistent, try using a mild detergent. Repeat this process until the stain is removed.
