Introducing our Unique Handmade Wool Rug Blanket "Gabba from Kashmir"- a Colorful Embroidery Masterpiece

Transport yourself to the enchanting and mystical land of Kashmir, North India, where centuries of artistry come alive in this extraordinary creation.

Kashmiri carpet making and embroidery art are renowned across the globe, and our "Gabba" is a testament to that heritage. This vintage gem is truly one-of-a-kind.

"Gabbas" are a window into the rural life of Himalayan villages in Kashmir. They are crafted from pieces of old woolen textiles, often repurposed blankets or jute textiles, seamlessly joined together and adorned with vibrant woolen embroidery. Originally, they were the common man's warmth during harsh winters, as sitting on the ground is a tradition in this region. However, the art of creating "Gabbas" is fading, overtaken by machine-made textiles. This makes each Gabba a rare treasure.

Now, it's your chance to embrace the charm of a bygone era. Decorate your bohemian bedroom by draping it over your bed as a vibrant throw blanket. Or use it as a decorative rug or floor seating option, perhaps in your meditation space. Wherever you place it, this Gabba adds a touch of timeless craftsmanship.

Measuring approximately 54 by 80 inches, this woolen wonder is adorned with chain stitch embroidery using a special hook called "aari." Every stitch is a labor of love, transforming a woolen blanket-rug into an exquisite piece of artistry.

Bring home a piece of Kashmir's legacy with our Unique Handmade Wool Rug Blanket. It's more than decor; it's a journey through time and tradition, waiting to grace your space with its vibrant hues and rich history.

Bring a storytelling amazingly handcrafted rug to your home.
