Gabbeh Runner Green

A new direction for Edelgrund who have created a series of hall runners with a playful geometric pattern in vibrant colours.

As best described by Maryam Ebrahimi, Edelgrund’s director: “Our tribes are very proud of their culture and traditions and that includes carpet designs! It’s not always easy to ask them to break tradition and weave something different. We have to walk them through each step and change things little by little. Edelgrund’s weavers aren’t centralised in one location, they are all freelancers, working of their own free will from their own homes. As a result, introducing new weaving techniques and new designs can be quite challenging but we wouldn’t have it any other way. The Gabbeh hall runner collection was our first attempt at asking our weavers to craft rugs in a single colour with a flat-weave border. What started as a trial has now grown into a limited edition hall runner series. Let’s see where this takes us.”

About the designer

Edelgrund

Founded in 2013 by a collective of Iranian rug makers and designers, Edelgrund merges traditional Persian craftsmanship with an expressive and modern interpretation. With over three generations in rug making, Edelgrund’s unique creations are strongly anchored in Persian culture.

From green mountain formations to barren salt deserts; as varied as Iran which stretches across different climatic zones, so is the richness of the traditional knotting and weaving techniques that are found in Edelgrund’s collections.

Their colourful designs creatively combine colours, patterns and linear elements into complex compositions that blend perfectly to create unique, timeless floor coverings. Monochrome areas alternate with expressive contrasts and delicate colour gradients which are inspired by nature. “Our rugs are an expression of the authenticity of the region where they are made and a passion for the craft.” says Maryam Ebrahimi, Managing Director of Edelgrund.
