Unique handmade wool rug blanket - colorful, embroidery rug
made in the enchanting and mystique land of Kashmir, North India.

The Kashmiri Art of Carpet making and embroidery art is famous all over the world.
This is a unique, vintage , one of a kind "Gabba"

The "Gabbas" are a reflection of rural life in the Himalayan villages of Kashmir.
They are made out of pieces of old woolen textiles (mostly blankets) or Jute textiles and then joint together and fully embroidered with wool in vibrant colors.
Traditionally a "common man's rug" that used to keep the people warm in the harsh winters as, people traditionally sit on the ground. Nowadays you can hardly find "Gabbas" in Kashmir, as machine made textiles, rugs and blankets have taken over and not many people know the art of this craftsmanship anymore.
Decorate your bohemian bedroom wall, lay it on the bed as a colorful accent. You an use it as a decorative or floor seating rug (Maybe for your meditation space?)
This Gabba is one of a kind piece of craftsmanship

Size is: 55 by 79 inches approximately
The chain stitch embroidery is done with a hook , called "aari" all over with wool blanket rug.
