info about Gul Bahar
Gul Bahar, meaning spring flower, is a line of rugs intended to celebrate the unplanned and eccentric sprit of tribal weaving originating from south western Iran. These rugs called gabbehs, were always created spontaneously by weavers as they wove, their looms often outside of their tents in the yayla (mountain pastures) that are their home. These rugs, woven by Turkmen weavers in northern Afghanistan are intended to capture the flavor of the best of the nomadic gabbeh tradition.
