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. When one batch of wool was used up, the weaver continued with the newly dyed batch. Because the exact hue of color is rarely met again when a new batch is dyed, the color of the pile changes when a new row of knots is woven in. As such, the color variation suggests a village or tribal woven rug, and is appreciated as a sign of quality and authenticity. Abrash can also be introduced on purpose into a newly planned carpet design. Some new rugs incorporate abrash into the design.
The beauty of Persian carpets is timeless and never go out of fashion. This will be enjoyed for generations to come. Persian Carpets are the original that others copy and are appreciated and valued world-wide.
