The appearance of slight deviations within the same color is called abrash. Abrash is seen in traditionally dyed oriental rugs. Its occurrence suggests that a single weaver has likely woven the carpet, who did not have enough time or resources to prepare a sufficient quantity of dyed yarn to complete the rug. Only small batches of wool were dyed from time to time, usually in a small pot. When one batch of wool was used up, the weaver continued with the newly dyed batch. Not using precise measurements for the dye material, the exact hue of color is rarely met again when a new batch is dyed, thus the color of the pile changes over time. As such, the color variation suggests a village or tribal woven rug and is appreciated as a sign of quality and authenticity.
The Qashqai people now live around southern Isfahan, and especially around the cities of Shiraz and Firuzabad in Fars. The majority of Qashqai people were originally nomadic pastoralists, and some remain so today. This was woven when they were nomadic. The traditional nomadic Qashqai travelled with their flocks twice yearly to and from the summer highland pastures north of Shiraz roughly 300 miles south to the winter pastures on lower (and warmer) lands near the Persian Gulf, to the southwest of Shiraz. The majority, however, have now become partially or wholly sedentary. This rug was woven by Qashqai nomads.
