 Gabbeh’s design, like other carpets, reflects the inner desires, beliefs, and beliefs of its designers and weavers.  Nomadic and rural women call on family and other men to learn these behavioral traits by weaving the design of fearless, rebellious, impatient, savvy, and free animals.
 The wool consumed in the Gabbe is not colored and is natural and usually does not exceed three to four colors.  If it is needed to dye it, colors similar to the original color are used and therefore the color of this substrate is more resistant to washing and sunlight.

 “Gabbeh rug” with shorter pile  and less wool is the preferred type of gabbeh, with wool consumed more often and without dyeing.
