Gabba making has its roots in village life, therefore the reflection of rural taste and aesthetic preference is visible in the craft. Gabba is a traditional example of sustainable design as it uses waste as a resource for making new useful products.

About the art:
The embroidery is done on a woollen cloth with a hook tool called “Aer”. Gabba is made in two ways. Patch work or appliqué’ Gabba is made by joining different pieces of old rags of varied colours. The patches are joined with such skill that the onlooker cannot tell that it is made out of different pieces. Traditionally pieces of old rags or waste blankets were sewn together and embroidered. Even pieces of fabric were joined with the help of stitching onto a larger piece of fabric to form patterns.
Another way of making Gabba is by first dyeing the cotton or woollen cloth in a single colour followed by embroidery done with the yarn of different colours. In this type of Gabba, double stitch embroidery is done with cotton yarn. Such kind of Gabba is popular locally.
A Gabba comes in varied sizes with dimensions of 9×12 feet, 4×9 feet, 2×4 feet, and 3×4 feet. Gabba have been traditionally used for various purposes & during different occasions such as marriages, in guest rooms and embellishing the interiors of palanquins for brides. Chainstitch Gabba are also used as curtains. Gabba have also found use in rituals and as prayer rugs.
