Gabbeh carpets made by Behruz Studio. This is an old persian carpet style that is similar to textmode in many ways. It has not-so-precise patterns and a small number of knots per square centimeter. They can be produced rather quickly and cheap. In fact, the word Gabbeh means raw, natural and uncut.

It uses few colours, which are usually quite bright. Shapes are usually rectangular. There can be large fields of the same colour, but they variegated (ie, the colour varies throughout the carpet).
